Participation in the BIB
The participation of illustrators in the BIB is organised through relevant central organisations, cultural institutions, associations of illustrators, the IBBY national sections and national committees of the BIB, national commissions for the UNESCO, publisher’s institutions and by inviting individual illustrators.
The competition part of the BIB is the exhibit of works of individual artists. The BIB Secretariat accepts the selection done in states in which the participation of illustrators in the BIB is organised through a commission, jury or by an appointment of the commissioner.
The illustrations are shown at exhibits according to the state citizenship. The organisers from individual states are responsible for a correct categorisation of the illustrator.
The illustrator may sent 10 illustrations maximum to the competition part of the BIB, and namely from two books. The condition to accept the illustration to the competition is its book publication in the period defined.
