BolognaRagazzi Award 2022

BCBF presents the winners and special mentions for the 2022 BolognaRagazzi Awards.

This book showcase presents the winners and special mentions for the 2022 BolognaRagazzi Awards, the BCBF's historic award acknowledging the world’s best recently published works for children and young adults.

Three international juries of experts selected 23 outstanding books among 2,215 titles submitted from 62 countries and regions. The BolognaRagazzi Award comprises the traditional Fiction, Non-Fiction, Opera Prima (debut author) categories, but also Comics, and a special category this year dedicated to Poetry. Completing the round-up is BRAW’s New Horizons, a special prize the Jury is free to award for strikingly innovative works.

The showcase also features the Grand Prize and special mentions for the 2022 BolognaRagazzi CrossMedia Award, the BCBF's publishing prize aiming to select great books arising from multimedia projects, and also the best narratives that have been successfully adapted across other platforms. This year, the international jury examined over 80 publishing projects, selecting 10, from which the Grand Prize and the special mentions were chosen.
