Caldecott Award Winners The Caldecott Award is a prestigious award which was first presented in 1938. It is awarded annually by the American Library Association to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children published in the United States. The award is named in honor of the nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph J. Caldecott and is granted specifically to the illustrator of the book, rather than the author, although the two may be, of course, one and the same. The award was created to complement the Newbery Medal, another award which acknowledges the authors of children's books, in recognition of the fact that the artists creating picture books for children were as deserving of honour as the authors of children's books.
