The purpose of the International Competition for an Illustrated Children’s Book Project is to prepare a project (draft) of an illustrated children’s book in Polish or in the English language. Submission should include a storyboard or a script of the whole book, together with 3 finished double spreads and a summary in English (obligatory) and in Polish (only if the whole project is in Polish).

The International Competition for an Illustrated Children’s Book Project wants to stimulate the artists’ imagination and encourage them to create well-thought and refined book projects, that have a real chance to become published books.
