The Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award Committee

Members of the Award Committee use their life-long familiarity with the works of H.C. Andersen to identify a short list of authors whose work embodies the qualities of fantasy and myth exemplified by Andersen’s works. The Committee cooperates with the literature faculty of Southern Danish University (SDU). The SDU Advisory Board nominates suitable authors to the Hans Christian Andersen Literature Award Committee.
