The five category winners in the 2011 Costa Book Awards have been announced, with each now going on to compete for the overall Costa Book of the Year prize.

Andrew Miller triumphed in the best novel category for his sixth book, Pure, while debut author Moira Young's Blood Red Road was victorious in the children's category.

The biography prize was scooped by another debut author, Matthew Hollis, for Now All Roads Leads to France: The Last Years of Edward Thomas, while the first novel award was won by Christie Watson for Tiny Sunbirds Far Away.

Finally, the poetry prize was won by poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy for her acclaimed collection, The Bees.

Commenting on the five category winners, John Derkach, managing director of Costa, said: 'We're very proud to be announcing such a terrific collection of books which we know people will enjoy reading.'

A panel of judges chaired by Geordie Greig, editor of the London Evening Standard, will now determine the overall winner of the Costa Book of the Year prize, which will be announced at a ceremony at Quaglino's in London on January 24th.
