Charles Perrault Graphic Award 2011


Rules & regulations Charles Perrault Graphic Award 2011

Article 1: Theme of the competition
A competition is organized by IICP (Institut International
Charles Perrault / Charles Perrault International Institute) to
reward the best illustration for a set text. This year the
theme is an extract from Le Voyage enchanté [The
Enchanted Journey] by Bruno Gay-Lussac:

“He was less interested in the origin of letters than in that
of numerals. Yet he was more captivated by words than by
figures. Although he instinctively despised ordinary
language and the thoughtless fashion in which his parents
used it, he wondered where speech had originated, since
animals could not speak; and why he, Simon, who so often
chose to keep silent, could only think with words.”

Participants are requested to offer an illustration of this
extract. The prize will be awarded in autumn 2011, in
Eaubonne (France).
