Set up in honour of influential publisher Klaus Flugge of Andersen Press, the Klaus Flugge Prize is awarded to the most promising and exciting newcomer to children’s picture book illustration.

The shortlist for the 2017 Klaus Flugge Prize will be announced live on Wednesday 17 May at this very special Foyles event celebrating the art of the picture book. Klaus Flugge Prize chair of judges Julia Eccleshare will be joined by award-winning illustrators Michael Foreman, Emily Gravett and Mini Grey as well as Professor Martin Salisbury Course Leader, MA Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art, to discuss what makes great picture book illustration, and how illustrators today use pictures to move, entertain and influence their audience.
