The town of Mulazzo & the International Organisation of Book Towns
Illustrated Silent Book Contest 2023
The town of Mulazzo and the International Organisation of Book Towns present the eighth edition of the International Illustrated Silent Book Contest expressly dedicated to silent books, that is, illustrated books without words.
Given that the illustrated book and the visual language of illustrations and pictures are in no way secondary to written language, with a universal power and potential that supersedes any barrier of language or genre, the Silent Book Contest invites authors and illustrators to think up and design a book conceived exclusively for the telling of a story through illustrated images, on any subject and intended for a wide and diverse section of the reading public, regardless of genre or age.
For each book project sent to the competition, a complete layout should be created. The layout must be a single digital file, exclusively in high-quality PDF format.
Open worldwide to illustrators over the age of 18.
The winning book project of the Silent Book Contest 2023 will be published by Carthusia Edizioni. The author will sign a regular publishing contract and receive a cash prize of 4.000 EUR (approx. 4,230 USD), as advance on the royalties.
Entry fee is 50 EUR (approx. 53 USD) for each book project. A maximum of three book projects per single author is permitted.
deadline: February 3, 2023
