Books may be submitted for consideration for the 18th International Children and Youth Literature programme starting October 1st, 2017 until March 30th, 2018. Submissions will be selected according to their content and aesthetics, with the goal of fashioning a vivid tapestry of remarkable international contemporary literature for young readers. Books which can be presented as World, International, Europe, German or Berlin Premieres (first public reading from the book in attendance of the author/ illustrator) take priority in the programme selection.
Submissions must be entered in the original language of publication. With books whose original language of publication is not German or English, an English or German translation of the first 20 percent of the book must be included in the application. Both the authors and illustrators of the books, as well as their representatives within their publishing-houses, may send in entries. Book submission is possible only in PDF format via email with a maximum attachment size of 5 megabytes. Your entry will also be confirmed through email. 



Please send us your catalogue of new publications by mail to keep us updated about your programme. We are at the book fairs in Leipzig, Bologna and Frankfurt every year. Please make an appointment in time via email if you would like to update us about your future programme in person.
