Libris Awards

The Libris Awards recognize the extraordinary professionals who deliver great books to Canadian readers. They are nominated and voted on by members of the Canadian bookselling community. The Libris Awards honour the outstanding achievements made by authors and editors, sales reps and distributors, booksellers and publishers. Prior to 2010, the children’s categories included children's author of the year and children’s illustrator of the year. In 2010, the categories were revised to Children's Picture Book of the Year and Young Readers' Book of the Year.
