New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults – Picture Book Award

Christchurch City Libraries lists literary prize winners and links to catalogue searches, but we may not hold copies of all titles mentioned.

The New Zealand Picture Book Award is organised and administered by the New Zealand Book Awards Trust. Until 2014 the awards were sponsored by NZ Post. Prior to 1997, the awards were known as the AIM Children’s Book Awards. In 2016, the awards merged with the LIANZA Book Awards.
