The Deutscher Jugendliteraturpreis (German Youth Literature Prize) is an annual award established in 1956 by the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth[1] to recognise outstanding works of children's literature. It is Germany's only state-funded literary award.[2] In the past, authors from many countries have been recognised, including non-German speakers.

Organisation[edit]

The award is organized by the Arbeitskreis für Jugendliteratur, also called AKJ or Association for Children's and Youth Literature, which receives financial support, including prize money, from the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.

Awards are given in five categories: Best Picture Book, Best Children's Book, Best Youth Book, Best Non-Fiction Book and Choice of the Youth Jury. Up to six nominations in each category are announced in March at the Leipzig Book Fair,[1] and the awards are presented during the Frankfurt Book Fair by the Federal Minister of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth.[3] In each category, the winning author receives an 8000 euro cash prize, and a bronze statuette designed by Detlef Kraft representing Momo from the novel by Michael Ende.[1]

A special award, established in 1991, is also given every year to recognise long-term individual achievement for an author, illustrator or translator.[4] These awards generally carry a cash prize of 10,000 euros.[1]

History[edit]

Since the award was established, many changes have been made. When the Deutscher Jugendbuchpreis (as the award was known until 1981) began in 1956, only two categories were recognised; Best Children's Book and Best Youth Book. In addition to these, a special prize was awarded every year in a different category. It was not until 1964 that the Best Picture Book and Best Non-fiction Book categories replaced this variable award. In 1991, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the award, the Special Prize was reintroduced to recognise individual achievement for writers, illustrators and translators.[5] The final category recognized today, awarded by the Jugendjury, was not introduced until 2003, when it was originally called the Young People's Prize (Preis der Jugendlichen).

Jury[edit]

Awards are decided upon by two juries: the Kritikerjury (Critics' Jury) and the Jugendjury. The Kritikerjury decides the nominations and the majority of the prizes; the Jugendjury only decides the Jugendjury prize.

The Kritikerjury is appointed by the Arbeitsgruppe für Jugendliteratur once every two years, although jury members can serve two consecutive terms. The jury consists of nine members: the chair, and eight specialist judges - two for each award category.[6]

The Jugendjury consists of the members of six German youth book clubs. It is also changed every two years, although some clubs serve consecutive terms.[7]

Another jury decides on the Special Prize to be awarded each year.[8]
