SCBWI will be running a stand at this year’s Bologna Book Fair, the most prestigious gathering of children’s publishers in the world.
The Illustration Display Portfolio (IDP) will be available for browsing throughout the fair and is open to submissions from PAL (Published and Listed) SCBWI members of all regions.
You don’t need to be attending the Fair in order to submit to the portfolio.
(see also http://www.scbwibologna.org/display-portfolio.php)
Illustrators are requested to email a low resolution PDF of the
promotional piece they'd like to exhibit to IDP@scbwiBologna.org by
February 14, 2012.
The promotional PDF should:
- contain up to 3 images maximum, with your name and contact details clearly visible
- be on one side of a letter (8.5 x 11 inch) size page
- be in portrait format (i.e. height taller than width)
- have a Maximum size of 1MB.
Successful applicants will be asked to make a high-definition (300+ dpi) quality PRINT OUT of their accepted sample page, at A4 size which will then be mailed to the IDP. The print will be included in the Illustration Display Portfolio and taken to Bologna.
Participation in the Illustration Display Portfolio is free but space is
limited so a careful selection will be made of pieces that work for the
publishing world at Bologna.
