The Carnegie Medal in Literature was established in the UK in 1936 in honour of Scottish philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. It is awarded to an outstanding book for children and young adult readers. Nominated books must be written in English and should first have been published in the UK during the year before. The Carnegie judging panel consists of 13 children's librarians from the Youth Libraries Group of Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP). Nominated books are also read by students from many schools who send feedback to the judging panel. CILIP also recognizes excellence in illustration, with the Kate Greenaway Medal.

The award is announced in the June following the year of publication.[1] The winner receives a golden medal and £500 worth of books to donate to a public or school library.

The original rules stated that an author could only win the Medal once. This rule was later changed to enable subsequent work by the same author to be included for consideration.
