Apila Award

From Apila Ediciones we are committed to illustrators who try to make their way in the world of children’s illustration. Therefore we created the award PREMIO APILA PRIMERA IMPRESIÓN in 2013, aimed at illustrators who still do not have any children’s picture book published with ISBN (except for self-publishing).

That way we want to give the professional opportunity to illustrators who deserve it for their talent and quality and boost their career with the publication of their first work.
