Unpublished picturebook Showcase 2019
30 leading picturebook publishers select unpublished projects for a unique showcase
In the Frankfurt Kids foyer 5.1/6.1, there will be a showcase of unpublished picturebook projects selected by a jury of 30 children's book publishers around the world. 350 projects from 60 countries were submitted to the showcase, and the 48 projects with the most publisher votes will be showcased at FBM19. The Unpublished Picturebook Showcase is initiated by dPICTUS, which will also host an exhibition of '100 Outstanding Picturebooks' curated by international children's book experts. The main goal of dPICTUS is to help outstanding picturebooks cross borders and captivate new readers.
