The 7th competition edition is open!

The competition is now open – we invite all students and graduates from 2018 and 2019 to participate.

For the seventh time we are opening a Competition for the best design of a book for children as part of the event A well designed book – let's start with children.

The Competition will award the best projects in which individuality and artistic originality go hand in hand  with a form suitable for children of certain age groups.

We want to promote young artists on the publishing market, that is why, in this edition we have been joined by publishers – Debit and Ezop – who shared the texts and set out detailed conditions to illustrate them (you will find them in the attachment below).

We invite you to take part in the Competition!
