The Katha Chitrakala Award recognizes exemplary children’s book illustrations and ideas that are fresh, powerful and unique, and have the potential to keep young readers engaged and turn them towards lifelong reading. The Katha Chitrakala Award is a worldwide search for excellence in children’s book illustrations. Love picture books? Always wanted to illustrate for children? Here’s your chance to be published! You can illustrate your own story, team up with a writer, or ask us for a Katha story to illustrate for which Katha holds the copyright. If an illustrator-writer team wins, the prize will be awarded to the team, to be shared as they please. All entries will be judged on an equal basis. No special preference will be given to Katha stories. The selection process is eclectic and rigorous and rests solely on the quality of the work, its ability to speak to a child and to draw him/her to the joy of reading. Please note: the extended deadline (31 March 2011, extended from 14 January 2011) hasn't been updated on the official website, so don't get confused!
