Time to nominate

The final date, May 15, for nominating your candidates for the 2021 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award (ALMA) is approaching. This deadline is still valid, but for organisations planning to submit a nomination we have now decided on a change to hopefully make your work easier in the current COVID-19 situation:

On May 15, you need only to update the contact details of your organisation, and submit the name, country, category and grounds for nomination of your candidate(s). In the nomination form this is paragraph 3.1 and, for each candidate, paragraph 3.2.1 and 3.2.2. In the remaining mandatory fields please fill out that remaining material will be sent in August. We encourage you to submit the nomination through our online form, but you are also able to send the candidate information via e-mail or regular mail.

If you choose to do this, you will need to complete the nomination with the remaining information no later than August 20. If not submitted in time the jury will not approve the nomination.

If you have any further questions please contact Lisa Haglund on, or +46 76 540 10 53.
