The Neev Book Award

The Neev Book Award for distinguished children’s literature aims to recognize outstanding writing that leads to a fuller understanding of India, Indian lives, and Indian stories. This award aims to promote and encourage high-quality children’s literature from India. In 2018, the Neev Literature Festival extended its vision to promote and encourage high-quality children’s literature from India.

Each winner is honoured at NLF for their contributions towards a greater understanding of India, Indian lives, and Indian stories with a certificate, trophy, and cash award of ₹1,00,000.
