Swedish Picture Book of the Year

2022-03-19 to 2022-10-23

In springtime every year, a jury selects the best Swedish picture book among last year’s releases. The award recognizes the picture book as an artistic medium. The winner receives the award in March during Littfest, Umeå International Literature Festival, and in conjunction, preparatory sketches and original images from the award-winning picture book is being displayed in an exhibition at Bildmuseet.

The exhibition Swedish Picture Book of the year opens in the presence of the prize-winner on March 19th, 2022.

The Snöbollen [Snowball] award for the best Swedish picture book of the year is an initiative by the association Krumelur, Umeå Kultur, Kulturföreningen Pilgatan, Bildmuseet, the Regional Library of Västerbotten, Littfest, Mid Sweden University, and the Association of Swedish Illustrators and Graphic Designers.
