About the Nordic Council Children and Young People’s Literature Prize

The Nordic Council Children and Young People’s Literature Prize was first awarded during the 2013 Session of the Nordic Council together with the council’s other prizes. The prize is the result of the long-standing efforts of the Nordic ministers for culture to strengthen and elevate children’s and young people’s literature in the Nordic Region.

About the Nordic Council prizes

The Nordic Council awards five prizes each year – for literature, film, music, the environment, and children’s and young people’s literature. The purpose of the Nordic Council prizes is to raise interest in the Nordic cultural community and Nordic co-operation on the environment, as well as to recognise outstanding artistic and environmental efforts. The prizes help to elevate and give visibility to Nordic co-operation.
