While You’re Applying for Etisalat, Don’t Forget the Anna Lindh

The new Anna Lindh Foundation’s new “Children’s book award 2010” is accepting applications through October 15 from authors and illustrators in Egypt, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, and Lebanon.

The new award sets out to recognize the best in new unpublished fiction for children, written in Arabic and ready for release in winter 2010-2011.

A 2,000 Euro prize will be split between author and illustrator, and another 2,000 will go to the publisher (although if these are unpublished works, it seems they could be just as easily sent in without a publisher?) The prize also includes a promotion campaign for the winning book or books.

This year, special preference is being given pre-school and YA books.

For more information on how to submit for the award, contact: children.literature@bibalex.org. You can download the call for publishers here.
