The Ottilia Adelborg Award
The Ottilia Adelborg Award, with the aim of highlighting female artistry, is awarded a children’s illustrator who works in Ottilia Adelborg’s spirit. The prize, consisting of 20,000 SEK and a diploma with the Adelborg motif, is awarded by Gagnef Municipality every other year on December 6th, the anniversary of Ottilias birth. A jury nominates three illustrators, of which a prize winner is voted by the municipality’s third-graders. The prize was established by Gagnef municipality in 2000.
