James Krüss Prize 2024


The James Krüss Prize for International Children's and Young Adult Literature honours and promotes the work of a children's book author whose texts are characterised by linguistic brilliance, originality, imaginative storytelling and cosmopolitanism. The prize can be awarded to either a German or a foreign author. The prerequisite is the presence of the honoured work on the German-language book market. When honouring foreign authors, the main translators are also rewarded.

The winner of this year's prize will be announced in February.

With the kind support of the James Krüss community of heirs
