Deadline for submissions: January 22, 2016
Now in its 30th year, the Ezra Jack Keats Bookmaking Competition has grown into much more than a contest. It is a program that encourages author and illustrator studies, and gives students in grades 3 through 12 the opportunity to experience the problem solving and imaginative solutions involved in creating a picture book. This year the due date for picture book entries will be January 22, 2016.
