The 55th Illustrators Exhibition received submissions from 3,235 artists from 68 countries (2,899 Fiction + 336 Non-Fiction entries).
 
The International Jury – made up of Beatrice Alemagna (Italy), Atak (Germany), Suzanne Carnell (UK), Kiyoko Matsuoka (Japan) and Maria Russo (USA) – shortlisted 226 finalists in addition the 77 winners.

For the first time this year, BCBF also spotlights the Illustrators Exhibition finalists. On our BCBF Facebook channel you can always see “Il giro del mondo in 226 illustratori” / “Around the World in 226 Illustrators” (live on 24 March): Anna Castagnoli – author and illustrator – lead us on a journey around the world.
