Comment from the Judging Panel
Words from the 2nd Award Judging Panel
After two years, the Second Feng Zikai Chinese Children's Picture Book Award came to the fore. The seven judges engaged in the shortlist assessment come from different countries and regions. They are professors in children's literature and childhood education, experts in picture book, a picture book illustrator, and a picture book editor. For the final assessment, the congregation of the judging panel keeps multiple views of artistic value on the basis of following the picture book's general artistic rhythm. We tried our best to enlist works with varieties in creativity, genre, way of expression, and artistic style.
Rules and Judging Guidelines
- One “Best Children's Picture Book Award”, which the winner will be awarded a Cash Prize of USD 20,000 and a Feng Zikai Chinese Children's Picture Book Award Trophy. If the writing and the illustration are not produced by the same person, the Cash Prize shall be split equally between the writer and illustrator.
- Four “Judging Panel's Recommended Award” (Presentation of these awards or not depends on quality of the entries for the year), where the winners will be each awarded a Cash Prize of USD 5,000 and a Feng Zikai Chinese Children's Picture Book Award Trophy.
