  • Kate Greenaway Medal is awarded by children's librarians for an outstanding book in terms of illustration for children and young people
  • Red House Children's Book Award -This is the only national book award voted for entirely by children.
  • Waterstones Children's Book Prize - Now in its 8th year, the Waterstones Children's Book Prize was created to champion new and emerging talent in children's writing.
  • The Costa Book Awards - This is one of the UK's most prestigious and popular literary prizes and recognises some of the most enjoyable books of the year by writers in the UK and Ireland.  The award has five categories: First novel, Novel, Biography, Poetry and Children's Book.
  • The Stan Lee Excelsior Award - This award started out as a special one off category of the Sheffield Children's Book Award but the project was so successful that it has been extended and is now co-ordinated by a Sheffield school librarian.  This is an exciting new book award for graphic novels and manga enthusiasts - where kids aged 11-16 choose the winner by rating each book as they read it.
