The stArt Award is an international competition for up-and-coming illustrators. Through the years this illustration contest attracted competitors from 24 countries! It has resulted in a unique, international collection of illustrations. The theme of the fourteenth edition of the stArt Award is Pinocchio.

By participating the stArt Award you will be competing to have your work published in BoekieBoekie. The work of the stArt Award winner and 10 nominees will be published in several publications and on social media.
The assignment is to make a series of illustrations for one or more stories written specifically for BoekieBoekie. The typography of these stories can help you to get inspired; it also shows you how much space there is for the illustrations. You may also choose among one or more free creative assignments, such as developing a board game or creating a book cover. What you can do too is to illustrate one of your favourite passages from the original Pinocchio story.

All in all, you have to provide a minimum of 5 illustrations, which you present as a mini-edition of BoekieBoekie. Give your career a boost and join the stArt Award!
