The Stratford Literary Festival / Salariya Books Children’s Picture Book Prize gives unpublished authors and / or illustrators a chance to see their story come to life!
The competition welcomes authors who have a wonderful story to tell and illustrators who can create charming images, suitable for children aged 0-5.
Author submissions are judged on the quality of the story and illustrator submissions are judged on the quality of the images, with a lesser focus on the quality of the story itself. Entries are also welcome from author-illustrators or author and illustrator pairs.
Prizes: There is a cash prize of £1,000 up for grabs, plus a chance for the winning story to be published by ‘Scribblers’.
The overall winner will also gain career advice from a leading children’s book agent and publicity through the Stratford Literary Festival.
Deadline: 31 January 2020
