BolognaRagazzi CrossMedia Award

Submissions are open for the BolognaRagazzi CrossMedia Award 2021!

Participation in the new BolognaRagazzi CrossMedia Award is free and open to all publishers registered for the Bologna Children's Book Fair in the period 2019-2021. Deadline for entries: 1 May 2021.

Please refer to the Participation Regulations for all further information. 


Bologna Children's Book Fair has decided to reformulate the BolognaRagazzi Digital Award to broaden its scope and strengthen its connection with the world of books, establishing an award to select the best publishing projects that expand their narrative universe across different media or that are a narrative extension of a project originated in other media.   

Participation in the new BolognaRagazzi CrossMedia Award is free and open to all publishers registered for the Bologna Children's Book Fair in the period 2019-2021. 

The International Jury of the Award, composed of experts in interactive and graphic design, new media, video game, film and television works, aims to identify narratives that from traditional publishing have been able to convincingly migrate, intersect or expand to other platforms, such as television and cinema screens, video game consoles, mobile devices, and smart speakers.

The International Jury will award a Grand Prize from among all the entries. The Jury also reserves the right to award special mentions.

The BolognaRagazzi CrossMedia Award is organised in the framework of ALDUS UP, in collaboration with the association Mamamò.
