The Bologna Children’s Book Fair  is an industry leading event that has succeeded in bringing together a unique and diverse global audience thanks to 60 years experience. The result is the world’s premium copyright exchange hub when it comes to publishing which also extends to current multimedia and licensing businesses for children’s stories, illustration, animation and related areas.

Publishers, illustrators, graphic designers, literary agents, authors, translators, mobile developers, licensors and licensees, packagers, printers, distributors, audiobook professionals, booksellers, brands, librarians and teachers all flock to the event each spring to experience the world of books and multimedia products in thousands of booths across six huge halls.

Bologna / 2022

The award of the International Bologna Children’s Book Fair “The Best Children’s Publishers of the Year” is awarded to highlight the high professionalism of publishers in implementing innovative projects of high intellectual quality in children’s publishing. Every year, publishers from six parts of the world are nominated for the award – from Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa, Latin America, and North America. Five publishers from each region are chosen as the finalists.

We are proud of the member of our Association – publisher “Liels un mazs”, which, competing with publishers from France, Russian and Poland, won and was awarded the title of the Best European Children’s Publisher in 2021.
