The Carnegie Medal is known as "The Oldest and Most Prestigious Children's Book Award in the UK" and was established in 1936 by the American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Each year, an excellent new book for children or youth is awarded. Since 1955, the Carnegie Medal has had a sister award: Kate Greenaway. The award was established by the British Library Association to commemorate the great children's book illustrator of the 19th century, Ms. Kate Greenaway, and is one of the most important awards in the world of illustration.
