Tomie dePaola Award
Are there any other SCBWI members here doing this challenge? I just saw it (don't know when it was announced) but it's due, printed and mailed, December 1!
This year’s assignment is to cast yourself, as a child, in a picture book. Show your autobiographical character in a scene and make sure to convey the emotion of your character. The viewer should be able to read the emotion of the character immediately and clearly.
@Lydia-M "This will be the final year of the Tomie dePaola Award." - just read that on the site - kind of sad
There will still be an SCBWI contest judged by a panel after this year.
looks like fun!
I'm thinking about it myself.
