The National Book Development Council of Singapore is delighted to announce the inaugural SingTel Asian Picture Book Award. Beginning in 2013, the award will be presented annually to an outstanding unpublished picture book with a distinctly Asian theme.
The objective of the award is to encourage and inspire the creation and publication of more Asian-themed picture books. The award is also intended to stimulate public interest and awareness of picture books.
The first SingTel Asian Picture Book Award 2013, with a prize of S$10,000, will be presented during the Asian Festival of Children’s Content in May 2013.
Closing date for submissions is 31 December 2012.
