Award description

The Tir na n-Og Awards are a set of annual children's literary awards in Wales, established in 1976. They are presented by the Welsh Books Council to the best books published during the preceding calendar year in each of three awards categories, one English-language and two Welsh-language. Their purpose is "[to raise] the standard of children's and young people's books and to encourage the buying and reading of good books." There is no restriction to fiction or prose.

The awards are named for Tír na nÓg, the "Land of the Young", an otherworldly realm in Irish mythology.

The English-language award honours one book with an "authentic Welsh background" whose original language is English.

Until 1986 there was a single Welsh-language award. Since 1987 there have been two Welsh-language awards, Fiction and Nonfiction awards, 1987-2005, and Primary Sector and Secondary Sector awards since 2006. They are presented at the annual Urdd National Eisteddfod, recently during the first week of June.

Between 1976 and 1991, the English award was withheld on seven occasions, and the Welsh award once. All three awards have been conferred every year since 1992.

A complete list of winners is available on Wikipedia.
