The List of Selected Illustrators for the Illustrators Exhibition at the 2012 Bologna Children’s Book Fair has just been released!

The Illustrator Exhibit showcases the work of talented young artists whose work has yet to be acknowledged and each year one of these artists is awarded the Bologna Children’s Book Fair – SM Foundation International Award for Illustration. The award is announced by an international jury of experts during the Fair. This year’s winner will receive a prize of 30.000 dollars and given the opportunity to illustrate a children’s book to be published by Grupo SM. This book will then be presented during the 2013 Fair and a special exhibition organized to highlight the work of the winning artist. (The 2011 winner was Page Tsou from Taiwan )

The 2012 Illustrators Exhibition will be on display during the Bologna Children’s Book Fair (March 19 – 22), will then be exhibited in Japan under the supervision of JBBY and may subsequently be transferred to other venues in other countries. To learn more click here.
