Description

To promote creative literature and art for children and young adults, Fondo de Cultura Económica invites authors and illustrators from around the world to submit entries for its XXII A la Orilla del Viento Picture Book Competition.

Writers and illustrators may submit entries, provided that their work is in Spanish language. Stories must be told through the interaction or close interrelation between images and a brief text. Stories told purely through images are acceptable, but books without illustrations are not eligible.

Entries can have any theme, book layout, and illustration technique, with a maximum length of 48 pages and a minimum of 16 (only interior pages count).

Both text and illustrations of entries must be completely unpublished.

Entries must be submitted as dummies with the finished design, text, colour, and illustrations, the closest version to the final book.

General rules

Text and illustrations of entries must be unpublished both printed and digital way - total or partially - and may not be registered simultaneously for any other competition.
Participants may submit as many works as they wish separately.
Entries must stick to the picture book format. In other words, stories must be told through the interaction or close interrelation between images and a brief text. Entries can have any theme and should be signed with a pseudonym on the cover that should not contain biographical sketches or any reference to the names of the authors.
