Bologna Children’s Book Fair and Fundación SM, whose intention is to promote children’s books and reading, have launched in 2009 the International Award for Illustration Bologna Children’s Book Fair - Fundación SM , designed to discover, encourage and support new talents in illustration.
Reserved for artists under 35 that have already been selected for the Illustrators Exhibition, the Award offers the winner a cheque for $15,000 in order to give the resources for a year to develop a picturebook to be published and released on the world market by the Spanish publisher SM. The original illustrations of the book are presented to the next edition of the Bologna Children’s Book Fair for a personal exhibition dedicated to the winner.
