Goodbooks (www.goodbooks.in) is happy to announce The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Awards 2018 for Indian children’s books given in association with The Hindu Young World. The purpose of these awards is to promote excellence in children’s writing and illustration in India, to acknowledge innovative publishing trends, and to recognise children’s literature in India as an independent and important field.

The third round of awards will be given at The Hindu Lit for Life festival which will take place in Chennai in January 2018. This time, the awards will be given in four categories:

The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Award for Best Picture Book – Story
The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Award for Best Picture Book – Illustration
The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Award for Best Book – Fiction
The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Award for Best Book – Non-Fiction

Each award will carry a cash prize of Rs 50,000, a trophy and a citation.

The Hindu Young World-Goodbooks Awards are the first in India to recognise different genres in children’s publishing and to reward authors and illustrators for their invaluable contribution. The Hindu Lit for Life, which showcases the best of Indian literature, provides a platform to promote excellence in Indian children’s books.

The Goodbooks website is a repository for Indian children’s books and provides a space to all those engaged with children to enter the fascinating discourse on children’s literature. It is where educators, librarians, parents and research scholars get an overview of children’s literature in India, and an update of books being published across the country. The reviews on the site critically evaluate books, enhancing the understanding of what constitutes good children’s books and creating awareness about the role of books and reading in a child’s life.
