Levstik Award - 05.JPG

The Levstik Award, named after author Fran Levstik (1831–1887), has been bestowed by Mladinska knjiga Publishing House since 1949 for original literature works, original illustrations, and science books for children. It was the first literary award established by a Slovene publishing house after World War II.

Only books published by Mladinska knjiga Publishing House are eligible for the award, but the award committee is composed of outside members. At first the award was presented annually; since 1989 it has been presented biennially.





In 1999 Mladinska knjiga began to honour lifetime achievements with awards to children's authors and illustrators (recent winners include the authors Svetlana Makarovič, Polonca Kovač, Niko Grafenauer and Dane Zajc, and the artists Kostja Gatnik, Matjaž Schmidt, Alenka Sottler and Jelka Reichman).

The recent recipients of the Levstik Award for original literature works were Majda Koren, Andrej Rozman-Roza, Anja Štefan and Desa Muck, while the awards for original illustration went to the artists Damijan Stepančič, Svjetlan Junaković, Alenka Sottler and Suzana Bricelj).
