Jutta Bauer, Nikolaus Heidelbach and Andreas Steinhöfel nominated for the 2021 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award (‘AMLA’)

This richly endowed prize, amounting to approximately €480,000 and commonly described as the Nobel Prize for children’s and young-adult literature, has been in existence since 2002. Wolf Erlbruch, the laureate in 2017, is the only German children’s book illustrator to have been awarded the honour so far. This year, however, nominees from Germany once again find themselves in the running. Two German institutions are also included in the list of contenders: Munich’s  Internationale Jugendbibliothek (International Youth Library), and the Frankfurt artists’ collective ‘Labor Ateliergemeinschaft’. 30 March 2021 is the keenly awaited award day, and as usual the declaration of the winner can we watched worldwide via livestream at 1pm CET. Just a quick glance at the list of nominees each year - 263 of them this time - is enough to take one’s breath away.
