from wikipedia accessed 7/6/13

The Dayne Ogilvie Prize is a Canadian literary award, presented annually by the Writers' Trust of Canada to an emerging Canadian writer who is part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. The award was originally established as the Dayne Ogilvie Grant in memory of Dayne Ogilvie, a book editor, writer, arts manager and former managing editor of Xtra! who died in October 2006, by artist Robin Pacific, and was renamed from a grant to a prize in 2012.
Established in 2007, the CAD4,000 prize is presented for the writer's body of work. It is the only prize of its kind in Canada serving the LGBT community; any self-identifying writer is eligible. To qualify, writers must have published at least one book of fiction or poetry. The winner is selected by an independent jury of three members, and presented annually during Toronto's Pride Week celebrations.
In addition to the primary winner, the award also frequently presents an Honour of Distinction worth CAD500 to one or CAD250 to two additional writers. Authors who are awarded the Honour of Distinction remain eligible for the primary award in future years.

Carnegie Medal for Children's Literature (1936-2013)

Historical information from Wikipedia, accessed 7/6/13

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. 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.
