International Illustrated Silent Book Contest 2016
The town of Mulazzo and the International Organisation of Book Towns present the third edition of the International Illustrated Silent Book Contest expressly dedicated to silent books, that is, illustrated books without words.
Given that the illustrated book and the visual language of illustrations and pictures is in no way secondary to written language, with a universal power and potential that supersedes any barrier of language or genre, the Silent Book Contest invites authors and illustrators to think up and design a book conceived exclusively for the telling of a story through illustrated images, on any subject and intended for a wide and diverse section of the reading public, regardless of genre or age. For each book project sent to the competition a complete layout should be created. The layout must be a single digital file with a maximum size of 10Mb, exclusively in high quality PDF format. The book project should be presented on double pages with a format of 57cms in width by 28.5cms in height (to give a closed format of 28.5cms x 28.5cms and opening from right to left). Entry fee is 50 Euro (approx. 56 USD) for each book project (a maximum of three book projects per single author is permitted).
