Deadline for submitting your entries for the call for “Best Fiction Book for Children with Special Needs” is November 25th, 2010: That is, tomorrow!

أخر ميعاد للتقدم بأعمالكم لمسابقة أفضل كتاب قصصي للأطفال ذوي الإحتياجات الخاصة هو 25 نوفمبر / تشرين الثاني

More details here.

Of course, I applaud the idea of expanding the book market’s imagination, and I’m sure there is a need for books about children with different abilities and special challenges. I would also like to see contests:

*Funniest children’s book written in Arabic (something that really makes them fall off the couch laughing).

*Best Arabic graphic novel (for kids).

*Best Arabic children’s book written and illustrated by someone under 18.

*Best YA novel written in Arabic.

*Best middle-grade chapter book written in Arabic.

*Best cover design.

*Best original art (for an Arabic children’s book).

*Best multimedia extension of a book.

As soon as I find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, I will sponsor all of these awards.

The Anna Lindh Foundation staff also announced, on their Facebook page, that they’re “extremely excited today having the first technical screening for the entries received for the ‘Reading Here, There & Everywhere‘ regional award.”
