Changes to the 2018 TD Canadian Children’s Literature Awards

We have some great news to share with you about the TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award/Prix TD.

We are very excited to announce that, beginning this year, the grand prizes for each of the two TD literature awards will be raised from $30,000 to $50,000, thanks to the generosity of our sponsor, TD Bank Group. This major increase is to help support authors and illustrators in children’s literature to pursue their talents, helping create greater access to quality reading sources for children.

The Galas in both Toronto and Montreal will be hosted in more intimate venues this fall. We will be inviting the winning book authors and/or illustrators, members of their families and their publishers, as well as the creators of the other nominated books for the TD Awards and our six other awards. The more intimate gathering will be a night of celebration for the winners of the awards and their fellow nominees for their contribution to nurturing young minds. Unfortunately, we are no longer able to extend invitations to our members.
