For the fourth year in a row, the Frankfurter Buchmesse is awarding its Wild Card. Over the past three years, the competition has received more than 460 applications from 20 countries. With so many applicants, it was decided to give away TWO Wild Cards this year – one for a German exhibitor and one for an international exhibitor. Provide convincing answers to three questions regarding your exhibition concept to win the grand prize: an 8-sqm-stand at the world's largest fair for content. In addition to traditional publishers, all producers of creative content are encouraged to participate: illustrators, game developers, digital audio content creators, corporate publishers, science & education companies, vloggers, bloggers, photographers and many others.
Then register and submit your application here by 31 May 2018! All participants must answer the following three questions:
“The Wild Card gave us the wonderful opportunity to bring together the literature community for the Lit & Sit at the fair. It was great how Frankfurter Buchmesse made it so much easier for us to get started!”, said Dörte Brilling and Birgit Kidd from litnity.
“The Wild Card was a great opportunity to call attention to our multimedia textbook (mBook). Moreover, with the ‘Edu Couch’ we were able to create a space for the topic of digital education, helping inspire new ideas”, says Benjamin Heinz, CMO of the Institut für digitales Lernen (Institute for Digital Learning).
“Winning the Wild Card was a milestone in our company’s brief history. I’d even venture to say that things never would have moved forward as quickly without the attention it brought us: Just a few months later we were taken over by Ullstein Buchverlage GmbH”, reports Felix Plötz of Plötz & Betzholz Verlag.
