In 2018, Kate Milner was awarded The Klaus Flugge Prize for most exciting newcomer to children’s picture book illustration for My Name is Not Refugee.

The Klaus Flugge Prize judges highlighted the way mood and emotion are beautifully portrayed in the book, commenting on the way Kate Milner chooses to use a limited palette but avoids making it too dark. They were impressed by how well she draws, and the way the book’s construction always leaves space for the reader.
