    The Education Department of the City Council of Santiago de Compostela, as part of the 15th Reading Promotion Campaign and in collaboration with Kalandraka publishers, announces the call for entries to the VIII International Compostela Prize for Picture Books.

    The competition is open to all publications included in the picture book category: a book in which the story is told through illustrations and images, with both complementing each other.

    The books may be presented in any of the official languages in the Iberian peninsula, and must be original and unpublished. Adaptations of originals or books that have already been awarded prizes or mentions in other contests will not be accepted.

    The projects may be presented in any size, technique and format, but may not contain any more than 40 inner pages (excluding covers and endpapers).

    There is no entry fee.


    One or more persons, authors of the text and illustrations of any nationality may take part.


    A single prize of 9000 Euro (approx. 10,150 USD) is established as an advance on author’s rights. This right shall be valid for a period of one year, after which the works shall be at the free disposal of the author(s).

    The prize-winning work will be published in all of the official languages of the peninsula (Galician, Catalan, Basque, Castilian Spanish and Portuguese) by the publisher Kalandraka in October 2015.
