And here they are...

The Bisto Book of the Year Award – Chris Haughton’s A Bit Lost

The Eilís Dillon award for a first children’s book – Chris Haughton’s A Bit Lost (as far as I know this is the first time two awards have gone to the same author)

The Honour Award for Fiction – Sheena Wilkinson’s Taking Flight

The Honour Award for Illustration – Caitríona Hastings and Andrew Whitson’s Mac Rí Éireann

The Special Judges Award – Oliver Jeffers’ Heart and the Bottle

The Children’s Choice Award (voted for by children's juries all around the country) - Sheena Wilkinson for Taking Flight!

Congrats to all the winners.
