The Amnesty CILIP honour
CILIP and Amnesty International UK work in partnership to raise awareness of human rights. Tol help children, teachers and librarians to better understand our freedoms through the outstanding books shortlisted for the CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals.
Together, will celebrate the books on the annual CILIP Carnegie and Kate Greenaway shortlists and aim to broaden awareness of how great children’s books encourage empathy and broaden horizons.
Each year two special commendations, the Amnesty CILIP Honour, are awarded to the author and illustrator of two books; one from each shortlist, that most distinctively illuminates, communicates, or celebrates our personal rights and freedoms.
