The 7th Edelvives International Picture Book Award 2018 now is over!
The 7th Edelvives International Picture Book Award 2018: As part of its long-standing commitment to selecting and publishing high quality illustrated books, Edelvives Publishing Group presents the 7th Edelvives International Picture Book Award inviting all writers and illustrators of legal age of any nationality to take a part.
The goal of Edelvives International Picture Book Award is to encourage authors and illustrators to submit proposals for editorial projects which offer new ideas, allowing Edelvives to continue innovating in the development of its publishing line.
Works must fall under the heading of picture book, meaning a book in which the story is told through images and text
Each participant may anonymously enter a maximum of 2 projects in the competition. These must be original, unpublished and may not be submitted to another publishing house for evaluation at the same time. Projects may not be withdrawn from the competition during the submission period.
The proposed picture book may be of any size as long as it is no smaller than 21x18.5 cm and no larger than 30x39 cm. The length of the project must be 32 pages (flyleaves included). The subject of the text submitted is at the author’s discretion. The length should be no more than 6,000 keystrokes or characters with spaces.
The project must contain:
• a sealed envelope with the personal details of the participant or participants (name, address, telephone number and email address), as well as a brief biographical profile;
• two paper copies of the following
- a document presenting and explaining as well as possible what the project consists of,
- the complete text of the work,
- a storyboard,
- three finished illustrations (copies, not originals) which show the protagonist in different situations,
- the proposed flyleaf content.
The prize will be awarded to the best editorial project for a picture book submitted, not to a finished work.
The jury, formed by specialists in different fields of culture and artistic creation, will award the prize based on factors such as best proposal or original idea for a project, best text, best illustrations, best proposed setting, best storyboard, and best flyleaf proposal.
Notice of the winning project will be published in March 2018.
