International competition for an illustrated children's book project. Fourth edition.

The children’s books world is intriguing and inexhaustible and there is still a lot to discover. The Dwie Siostry publishing house once again invites authors, illustrators, graphic designers and all book lovers from Poland and abroad to participate in the international competition for an illustrated children’s book project – Clairvoyants!
Due to the ongoing epidemic situation, 2020 edition will be a bit different than the editions organised in the past.

Over 1,500 entries from all over the world were submitted to the previous three editions!

After each edition of the Clairvoyants, the most captivating entries are compiled to create a post-competition exhibition. Exhibitions from three previous editions have been travelling all over Poland and were exhibited in many schools, libraries and cultural institutions.

The aim of the competition is to launch the process of creating beautiful and valuable books for children and to give the opportunity to talented authors, illustrators and book designers to become known on the book market.
Participants should demonstrate creativity, skilfulness, sensitivity and understanding of the children’s world. The competition is aimed primarily at book designers, students of art schools, illustrators and authors, but everyone is invited to try their hand!

Competitors can be awarded with one of the three different prizes:

The main prize of EUR 2,500 and two honourable mentions – by the international jury;

Book publication – by the Dwie Siostry Publishing House jury;

Admission in the post-competition exhibition;

This time an additional surprise awaits the winners! At the end of May 2021, just after the opening of the post-competition exhibition, the
authors of the awarded and mentioned entries will be invited to take part in masterclass workshops lead by the jurors of the fourth edition of the competition!

Competition results will be announced on the 1st of April 2021.
