The Klaus Flugge Prize: putting illustrators in the picture
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.
Hear from some of the finest children’s illustrators of our time, and meet the rising stars of 2017, as well as their editors and agents. Klaus Flugge himself will be a special guest.
The 2017 Klaus Flugge Prize shortlist will be announced by last year’s winner Nicholas John Frith, 2017 judge Tamara Macfarlane and chair of the judges Julia Eccleshare.
