The Young Talent winners 2018
What former Young Talent winners say
“I was part of the Young Talent initiative 2019 and throughly enjoyed it. I found it hugely beneficial to discuss the experiences and specialties of the other people in the initiative. It was also fantastic to partake in the events and see the full scope of what is on offer and what goes on at the book fair.”
“Digitalisation has reduced the distance between readers and publishers. Social media offers an opportunity to engage in dialogue. We are moving towards a personal, reciprocal approach to reading across different platforms. And one thing is certain: that is nothing to be afraid of.”
"As a digital native I think, that the book industry must find new ways to expand its book worlds. There are endless opportunities to do that - also specially in the digital segment. And I want to get involved in this process.“
We support young professionals and high potentials in many ways
