THE GUARDIAN 
CHILDREN'S FICTION AWARD
1967-2002

Each year the Guardian newspaper of London awards a prize to an outstanding work of fiction (not picture books) for children written by a British or Commonwealth author. The work must be first published in the UK during the calendar year preceding the year in which the award is presented. The winner is chosen by a panel of authors and the review editor for the Guardian's children's book section.
