We are absolutely delighted to be nominated for one of the most prestigious awards in children’s book publishing – the BOLOGNA PRIZE for ‘Best Children’s Publishers of the Year’. The prize is for our children’s book imprint Flying Eye Books, which we launched two years ago and through which we now publish around 15 titles annually. The Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the largest international fair of its kind with its award for Best Children’s Publishers being split into 7 geographical territories. It is a great honour to be one of only 5 publishers selected in the European Category.
To be considered for this prize after such a short time is a huge boost for our whole team and we would like to thank all of our editors, designers and staff for all their hard work during this time. Most of all we would like to thank our artists and authors – this nomination is for you. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our colleagues at other publishing houses who voted for us – and indeed urge you all to vote for us at the fair!
