The deadline is quickly approaching so I thought I'd share for any who might want to enter:
"Are you an unpublished artist with a great picture book idea?... Little, Brown Books for Young Readers announces the LITTLE, BROWN EMERGING ARTIST AWARD. This new initiative seeks promising new talent and encourages the development of high-quality picture books that resonate with readers of diverse backgrounds and experience, while also providing valuable mentorship by an acclaimed illustrator and children’s book professionals....
