Caldecott Medal
Caldecott Medal

The Randolph Caldecott Medal is awarded annually by the American Library Association “to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children […] Honor books may be named. These shall be books that are also truly distinguished.” The Caldecotts are awarded to an illustrator of an American picturebook; the ALA gives a sister award, the Newbery, to authors for literary merit.

The Randolph Caldecott Medal recognizes the preceding year’s “most distinguished American picture book for children”, beginning with 1937 publications. It is awarded to the illustrator by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA). The Caldecott and Newbery Medals are the most prestigious American children’s book awards.
