Kate Greenway Medal nominations


Bright is very proud to support our illustrators who have been nominated for the Kate Greenaway Medal, particularly as this award specifically recognises exceptional artistic talent for children’s illustration. We are known for discovering and developing new illustrators for the children’s books. Both Nicola O’Byrne and Yasmeen Ismail have only been with Bright for a year, and their debut books are already being recognised and are on this strong list. It’s a great honour and acknowledges their handwork and talent.

The medal is awarded annually for outstanding illustration for children’s books.  The winner receives a gold medal and £500 worth of books to donate to a library of their choice. While the list is filled with many contenders, it’s a great nod to our illustrators who are new to the market. The long list will be released in February 2014.
