Best new illustrators award 2011

While I was super busy at the offices of Book Aid International, the results of the best new illustrators award came out. And what a fantastic list too.

Joe Berger

Claudia Boldt

Katie Cleminson

Chris Haughton

Alice Melvin

Sara Ogilvie

Levi Pinfold

Salvatore Rubbino

Viviane Schwarz

Kevin Waldron

Personally, I’m delighted to see Viviane Schwarz, Claudia Boldt and Chris Haughton on there and also, wow! Congratulations to Walker Books, as ever proving that they really do know their picture book talent. I’m hoping it’s a very happy office there today!

For full details of the unveiling of this list, hop on over to Booktrust’s website. If you missed the action as it happened yesterday, use the hashtag #bni11 on Twitter to see the events unfolding live. And I would strongly recommend this slideshow on the Guardian website which displays illustrations from all of the winners with a lovely voiceover from current Children’s Laureate Anthony Browne on why picture books are so invaluable. Enjoy!
