Published Illustrator Opportunity in Bologna!

A message from the SCBWI International Illustrator Coordinators helping put together a display at the upcoming Bologna Book Fair (need not be in Bologna to participate, and that's no bologna!)

Published Illustrators,

Submit your illustration work for the SCBWI Portfolio at Bologna!

Deadline is fast approaching!

Once again SCBWI will be running a Stand at this year's Bologna Book Fair, the most prestigious gathering of children¹s 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 don¹t need to be attending the Fair in order to submit to the portfolio!

Submissions (see also )

Illustrators are requested to email a low resolution PDF of the promotional piece they'd like to exhibit to 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 an A4 or 11 x 8.5 inch size page
* be in portrait format (i.e. height taller than width)
* have a Maximum size of 1MB.

All artwork will then be reviewed for inclusion.

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 posted to the IDP volunteer at a provided address. 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.
