We reached out to emerging picturebook talent to submit their unpublished projects to be considered by a jury of 30 international publishers for a showcase at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2019. We received 350 projects from 60 countries. The publishers voted independently for their favourites, and the 48 projects with the most votes make up this unique showcase.
