The Excelsior Award and Excelsior Award Junior are the only nationwide (and now including the Republic of Ireland!) book awards for graphic novels and manga where school children decide the winners by rating each book as they read it (according to Story, Artwork, Characters and Dialogue). Now in its eighth year, the award attracted over 250 schools from all over the UK and Ireland in last year.
Registration for 2019 opens in November 2018, with the new shortlists being announced a month later.
