The Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator's Award is presented annually by the Canadian Library Association/Association canadienne des bibliothèques (CLA) to an outstanding illustrator of a new Canadian children's book.[1] The book must be "suitable for children up to and including age 12" and its writing "must be worthy of the book's illustrations". The illustrator must be a citizen or permanent resident. The prize is a plaque and $1000 presented at the CLA annual conference.[1] The medal commemorates and the award is dedicated to schoolteacher and artist Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon who taught academics as well as art to Ontario schoolchildren in the 1860s and early 1870s. Her best-known work An Illustrated Comic Alphabet was published in 1966 by Henry Z. Walck in New York and Oxford University Press in Toronto.
