Award description

The Guardian Children's Fiction Prize (or Guardian Award) is a prize for works of children's literature by British or Commonwealth authors. It began in 1967 and has since been awarded annually. Contestants are judged by the Guardian's children’s books editor and a panel of authors. It is a lifetime award in that previous winners are not eligible.
