The Dromkeen Medal is an annual award, established in 1982, and presented by the Governors of the Courtney Oldmeadow Children’s Literature Foundation.
This award is made annually to an Australian citizen for a significant contribution to the appreciation and development of children’s literature in Australia.
The Dromkeen Medal was designed by Robert Ingpen and depicts the Dromkeen homestead, a sickle moon and boughs of wattle.
The presentation is made in March to commemorate the birth date of the late Courtney Oldmeadow.
