Will support two members to visit Athens
IBBY UK will support two of its members to attend the 2018 IBBY World Congress on 30 August in Athens.
The organisation has run the scheme since hosting the 2012 World Congress in London, and has given bursaries to enable members to attend the 2014 congress in Mexico and the 2016 congress in New Zealand.
One bursary is for anyone working towards a degree in creative writing or illustration, with a particular interest in writing or illustration for children; the other is for anyone with an established interest in children's books and literacy or the work of IBBY. The organisation said that it would particularly welcome applications from translators of children’s books, since the Congress includes a section on translation.
Applications must be received by 30 November.
