The AFCC Asian Children’s Book Award by Genting Singapore (ACBA) is a joint initiative between the National Book Development Council of Singapore (NBDCS) and Genting Singapore PLC (GENS). As Asia's largest children's book award, it aims to raise the profile of children’s picture books published in Asia by an Asian team, and encourage the production of quality picture books with a focus on Asian themes and settings. This award is the first of its kinds to give equal recognition to not just the writers and illustrators of picture books, but also the translators. With this added emphasis on translation, the Asian Children’s Book Award looks to promote the publication of Asian children’s books in multiple languages, extending their reach to other countries in the region and beyond.
