According to the announcement in The Hollywood Reporter,
Throughout the year, more than 200 contemporary authors and illustrators from around the world are highlighted to customers through in-store features that rotate on a monthly basis. In November 2007, finalists for the Awards were chosen by both corporate and store employees via an online voting process. A committee of corporate staff members representing each of the four categories read each finalist and selected the winners.
In March, at the awards ceremony, each winner will receive $5,000. Congratulations!
