ChLA Phoenix Picture Book Award Nominations
Established by the ChLA Board in 2010, the Phoenix Picture Book Award is a companion to the original Phoenix Award and recognizes a picture book published twenty years previously that did not win a major award at that time, but that the committee has determined to be of lasting value. The award is innovative, for unlike most picture book awards, it will honor not only the illustrator, but also the author (if they are two separate people). Books are considered not only for the quality of their illustrations, but for the way pictures and text work together to tell a story (whether fact or fiction). Wordless books are judged on the ability of the pictures alone to convey a story.
The committee is currently accepting nominations for books that were published in 2000, and after.
