HOW TO SUBMIT BOOKS FOR CONSIDERATION:

A book can be nominated by its publisher, translator, author or illustrator. The nominator should submit a completed submission form to GLLI Translated YA Book Prize committee chair Dr. Catharine Bomhold (c.bomhold@usm.edu). If the nominator is not the publisher, then GLLI will contact the publisher to request submission. Publishers have the right to accept or reject nominations of their titles.

Publishers are to mail one hard copy and email one digital copy (PDF preferred) of the book to committee chair Dr. Catharine Bomhold (c.bomhold@usm.edu; 704 Monterrey Lane, Hattiesburg, MS 39402). Digital copies will not be distributed outside the committee. Hard copies will be retained by GLLI for a permanent collection of YA literature, and indexed in GLLI’s database of children’s and YA literature in translation.

● There is no entry fee for this prize.

● If books were published in 2019 or 2020 and previously submitted for the award, there is no need to resubmit. The committee will consider eligible earlier submissions for the 2021 prize. Only titles from 2019 or 2020 that were not shortlisted may be considered for the 2022 award, at the discretion of the committee.

Please note:

GLLI will confirm the receipt of all books submitted. If you have submitted books for consideration and have not received confirmation after a reasonable amount of time, please contact the committee chair Dr. Catharine Bomhold at c.bomhold@usm.edu.

The 2022 award will be announced on International Children’s Book Day, April 2, which commemorates Hans Christian Andersen’s birthday. The prize will be granted in conjunction with ALA’s Annual Conference, generally in June or July.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING BOOKS IS DECEMBER 15, 2021.

Early submissions are appreciated.
