The inaugural Little Hare Prize for Illustration by Hardie Grant Children’s Publishing will be open for submissions from Thursday 1 October to Friday 30 October 2020.
The Little Hare Prize for Illustration has been established by Hardie Grant Children’s Publishing to inspire new work from unpublished and emerging artists. To be eligible for the prize, artists should not have illustrated more than one picture book with a trade publisher.
Awarded annually, the winner will receive a publishing contract and full editorial support to illustrate a new story for Little Hare.
Artists are asked to create artwork for a story contracted to Little Hare. To be considered, artists must submit the following pieces:
1. One to three pages of character sketches that show your character development.
2. One rough double-page black-and-white sketch that demonstrates your ability to interpret the narrative.
3. One double-page final colour illustration that shows your final artwork.
From 1 October, download the story page by via the Hardie Grant website. Please note that the text will only be made available once the prize opens on 1 October. When you are ready to submit your work, please click on the Submittable link.
