Becoming a Carnegie & Kate Greenaway judge

Join members of CILIP’s Youth Libraries Group (YLG) in this free webinar for an insight into what being a Carnegie and Kate Greenaway judge involves and advice on how to apply.

Being a Carnegie and Kate Greenaway judge is a rewarding and career-enhancing experience, described by many past judges as their “career highlight”. Find out how you can join the judging panel and influence the future of the awards. This webinar, run by CKG Coordinator, Amy McKay, will explore:

  • The benefits of judging
  • The expectations placed on judges and how YLG can help you achieve them
  • Access to judging for those not currently working with children or young people
  • The experiences of past and present judges
  • What the Chair of Judges 2021 will be looking for from her judges
  • How judging benefits employers and organisations
  • How to apply to be a judge and what to put in your application statement.

There will also be time for you to ask questions.
This webinar will be insightful for any professionals interested in the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals and how they are judged.
