Every year, on April 2nd, Hans Christian Andersen's birthday, International Children's Book Day (ICBD) is celebrated to inspire a love for reading and to call attention to children's books. On this day, a different National Section of IBBY (International Board of Books for Young People) will be the international sponsor of International Children’s Book Day.  The role of the sponsor is to decide on a theme and invite a prominent author from the host country to write a message for all the children of the world, along with a well-known illustrator to design a poster. This year’s host country is Ireland, and award winning Irish author Siobhán Parkinson will write the message.

As part of the celebration, the Greek IBBY – Greek Children’s Book Circle will confer its annual awards to authors, illustrators, librarians, educators and institutions which promote a love for reading. This year, for the first time in their history, the awards were selected by voting of the Greek Children’s Book Circle members and of the public.

This year’s awards will be presented by Filia Dendrinou and Christos Dimopoulos.
