Apila's First Printing Award 2020


14th February 2020

Who may enter
The contest is open to illustrators who have not yet published a book with ISBN.

The contest is organized by the Apila Ediciones, a publishing house based in Alagón, Spain.

From Apila Ediciones we are committed to illustrators who try to make their way in the world of children’s illustration. Therefore we created the award PREMIO APILA PRIMERA IMPRESIÓN in 2013, aimed at illustrators who still do not have any children’s picture book published with ISBN (except for self-publishing).

That way we want to give the professional opportunity to illustrators who deserve it for their talent and quality and boost their career with the publication of their first work.

Illustrators – regardless of nationality – may submit to the competition a project of an illustrated book for children, written in Spanish. Click here for more details.
