Our books are now closed.
Artists on our eligibility list are sent texts to illustrate throughout the year, including poems, stories, plays, nonfiction articles and activities. We value a broad range of styles (particularly, at the moment, realistic styles, and a light-hearted/whimsical approach to nonfiction articles). We publish fantasy, humour, folktales, historical drama, sci-fi and a mixture of these genres. Our readers are in the 8–12 year-old reading age range, so illustrations must be appropriate and engaging and appealing to readers across this age range.
