Organised by the Dwie Siostry Publishing House, the fourth edition of the Clairvoyants International Competition for an illustrated children book will continue to cherish the ideas and values that had underlain the previous editions of the contest: the ambition to awake the creative potential of young artists and authors, the care for an aesthetic and editorial quality of children’s books, the pursuit to determine the highest standards in the field and to support development of Polish children’s books and their perception abroad.

The purpose of the competition is to prepare a project (draft) of an illustrated children’s book in Polish or in English language. Submission should include a storyboard or a script of the whole book, together with 3 finished double spreads and a summary in English (obligatory) and in Polish (only if the whole project is in Polish).

All kinds of illustrated children’s books and picture books projects, regardless of format, technique, size and number of pages may be submitted. The only limitation is the length of the text of the entire book: 40,000 characters including spaces.

What will the fourth – pandemic – edition of CLAIRVOYANTS look like?
