The Wildcard winners

Winners of the German Wildcard 2019 were the Berlin activists behind the KIMBUK Festival and KIMI Seal. Their Children’s Book Festival and Children’s Book Seal recognise diversity and inclusion in children’s books. Of the international entries in 2019, the Canadian founders of Scenarex were the ones that convinced the jury. With Bookchain, they offer a blockchain-based method for securing the copyrights and distribution of e-books.
