The Bologna Book Fair 2014 has come to a close and what an epic year it turned out to be! The annual fair, now in its 51st year, hosted 1200 exhibitors from 75 countries and approximately 25,000 visitors over 4 days... that's an impressive set of statistics!


As usual, Childrensillustrators.com was in the thick of things with its plasma screen presentation in prime location near the main entrance. Our digital presentation showcased over 1000 illustrations from Childrensillustrators.com members. Publishers could been seen making notes and taking photos in preparation for that next commission. Childrensillustrators.com received glowing feedback from publishers worldwide, confirming our no:1 position as the Art Buyers' preferred illustration resource.  


Every year, The Bologna Book Fair selects a nation as guest of honour and this year Brazil was in the spotlight. This tribute represents a wonderful opportunity for the selected country to celebrate and showcase its publishing output and talent.  


The carnival fever continued when Roger Mello was announced as this year's winner of the Christian Andersen Award for illustration. Roder was at the fair in person and it was a delight to witness both his and the crowd's joyful celebrations when the announcement was made. Nahoko Uehashi of Japan won the sister award for writing.  


Both the The Bologna Book Fair and Childrensillustrators.com attract a broad audience of publishers and illustrators from around the globe. Childrensillustrators.com showcases work from almost every corner of the earth including, Argentina, Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, Germany, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States and Venezuela! It's easy to find the perfect illustrator with our easy to use navigation, style / subject galleries and search tool.
