To promote creative literature and art for children and young adults, Fondo de Cultura Económica invites authors and illustrators from around the world to submit entries for the 23rd edition of A la Orilla del Viento Picture Book Competition.
Writers and illustrators may submit entries, provided that their work is in Spanish language. Stories must be told through the interaction or close interrelation between images and a brief text. Stories told purely through images are acceptable, but books without illustrations are not eligible.
Entries can have any theme, book layout, and illustration technique, with a maximum length of 48 pages and a minimum of 16 (only interior pages count).
Both text and illustrations of entries must be completely unpublished. Entries must be submitted as dummies with the finished design, text, colour, and illustrations, the closest version to the final book.
There is no entry fee.
Open worldwide to anyone, 18 years or over.
The winner will receive 150,000 Mexican Pesos (approx. 6,410 USD) as an advance against royalties, and the publication of the book.
