Hedwig Anuar Children’s Book Award 2020
“It was not an easy deliberation with so many entries of such high quality. We considered each entry in its appeal to its intended audience and how it would measure up in its own genre. Generally, we kept to the criteria guidelines—literary merit, visual merit, readership appeal, and originality, The shortlisted books stood out from the rest in their masterful narration of original subject content with a strong interplay of text and visuals.
We are indeed privileged to have read and viewed such a wide array of children’s books that are locally written. We are heartened that among us exist such promising writers and illustrators that are on their way to making a mark not just locally but also internationally. We look forward to a rich and vibrant scene in children’s literature especially in a world we can call our own”.
Judges: Donna Lim, Charles Santoso & Lee Kow Fong.
