20th December 2017
Who may enter
The 7th Edelvives International Picture Book Award is open to all writers and illustrators of legal age of any nationality who submit projects in Spanish, English, French or any of the autonomous community languages of the Spanish State.
The contest is organised by Edelvives, a publishing firm specialising in children's and juvenile literature.
Each participant may submit a maximum of two projects of a picture book: a book in which the story is told through images and text, which complement each other.
The topic of the project is open.
The total length must be 32 pages.
The size is open, but may not be smaller than 18.5 x 21 cm or larger than 30 x 39 cm.
The text may not exceed 6,000 keystrokes, or characters with spaces.
The prize will be awarded to the best editorial project for a picture book submitted, not to a finished work.
Entry is free.
The prize is endowed with 9,000 €. The amount of the prize will be calculated based on the royalties stipulated in the publishing contracts.
The prize will be divided between the illustrator and author, with a 70/30 split.
