The Castor award

The Castor Award (named after the original Swedish name of Handy Harvey) was instigated 2009 by the publishing house Alfabeta and the heirs of Lars Klinting. The purpose of the award is to contribute to more picture books that combine fact and fantasy, just like those Lars Klinting created. The winner of the award is selected every other year amongst those who sent in scripts and pictures for a new picture book. The price consists of money and the winning contribution will also be published by Alfabeta.
