DESETNICA (The Tenth Child)

logo-desetnica-2016-cmyk

Desetnica is an award for children’s and youth literature awarded by the Slovene Writers’ Association in honour of making original children’s and youth literature recognizable both within the Slovene Writers’ Association and among the general public.
The Desetnica Award is intended for a wider recognition and asserting of children’s and youth literature within SWA, among professional literary critics, and among the public. Original children’s and youth literature has now been at a high level of quality for a period of decades and is one of the most frequently read sorts of national literature. At the same time, original children’s and youth literature represents the basis for creating reading habits; it represents the basis for forming the love of reading. The need for this peer award is quite understandable, since it is one of the basic steps to finally ensuring that youth literature is equal in state to non-youth literature, within the Slovene Writers’ Association and among the general public.
The Desetnica Award for best children’s and youth work in poetry or prose is awarded by the Slovene Writers ‘Association each year in May for the period of the previous three years, exclusively to members of the Slovene Writers’ Association, that write in Slovenian. The Award is granted on the basis of a selection prepared by an expert in youth literature, and the final selection is decided upon by a five-to seven-member jury combined of youth and non-youth authors that are exclusively members of the Slovene Writers’ Association. No member of the jury can be simultaneously a candidate or an Award recipient.
The Desetnica Award is sponsored by the Prešernova družba of Ljubljana.
