The works of all the participants is judge by a professional team of illustrators. They meet several times and do not always agree with each other. First there is the longlist. That's is not as difficult as making a short list. Than there is the top 10. Finally at the end of the last day
The works of the participants are also judged by children. They have the same discussions as the professional judge, use the same criteria, have almost the same opinion, but they do not need 40 hours to come to a point out their winner! On the picture you see from left to right: Mara van der
