I was just looking on the Kids’ Book Review website and their Unpublished Picture Book Award is now open to both authors and illustrators. Entries close 2 March 2015.
Here’s some info about Author entries:
Eligibility: Australian resident living in Australia or overseas, aged 18 or over.
One winner will score $200, a manuscript appraisal, a certificate and the chance to have their manuscript fast tracked to the publisher’s desk at Walker Books Australia. There is no guarantee of publication and normal Walker Books manuscript submission rules and timings apply.
Two runners-up will be announced. Each will win a manuscript appraisal and certificate.
Word limit – 400 words
The cost of the competition is $25 for authors and $15 for illustrators.
