Every year 7 months prior to the beginning of the Festival we announce an open call for illustrators who wish to become the Festival's participants. The number of applications we receive is growing each year. We choose just over a hundred of illustrators to participate in the Exhibition. Their artworks are published in a Catalogue that is later distributed to leading Russian and foreign publishing houses. Each year we also try to showcase parts of the Festival's Exhibition at local book festivals.
In 2019, 112 illustrators from all over the world (Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Israel, Germany, Belgium and the UK) took part in the Festival. This year we welcome applications from 23 April to 30 July. You can find participation terms and details here (Google Form).
