Iranian Illustrators at the 2010 Bologna ILLUSTRATORS EXHIBITION
The Bologna Illustrators Exhibition offers a broad picture of the most innovative trends in children’s illustration at a world level.

Created by the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, since 1967 it has offered artists from all over the world a unique opportunity to display their talent to key players in the sector who come to Bologna every year for the most important trade show for the exchange of copyrights for children’s literature.
Established artists and emerging talents are selected by an authoritative international jury consisting of publishers, artists and museum directors.
Fiction and non-fiction exhibited works are published in the Annual, a convenient reference tool that publishers use year-round. They will also be part of the traveling shows organized by JBBY (Japan Board on Books for Young People) in several Japanese museums, in Korea and other venues currently under study.

In this edition, the international jury, composed of experts in publishing, design, art, and illustration has selected 87 artists from 19 countries, among them there were two Iranian Artists;

– Ms. Afra Nobahar, the illustrator of “My beautiful Scarecrow” published by Kanoon in 2009
– Mr. Hasan Amekan , unpublished work
were the two selected artists from Iran.
The Bologna Children’s Book Fair, renowned for its special focus on children’s book illustration, together with the SM Foundation, whose intention is to promote children’s books and reading, have joined force to create the Bologna Children’s Book Fair – SM Foundation International Award for Illustration for the first time.
The aim of the award is to support the illustration work of young artists (under the age of 35), the special quality of whose work has yet to be acknowledged.
This annual award will be granted to one of the illustrators selected each year from the Bologna Children’s Book Fair Illustrators Exhibition.
The award, a 30,000-dollar cash prize, will be assigned by an international jury of experts, which will meet in Bologna during the Fair. The winner will be announced at the Fair. In addition, the winner will be offered the opportunity to illustrate a children’s book, which will be published by Grupo SM and presented the following year at the fair. A special exhibition will also be organized to highlight the work of the winning artist.

The International Jury decided to award the Illustration Prize of the Bologna Children’s Book Fair/Fundación SM to the work of Philip Giordano, an Italian artist who moves masterfully between the cultural idioms of the past with their graceful alchemy of the most delicate pictorial allusions, and a refined present from which the artist draws his citations of great moments of modern art.
