The eighth edition of the Etisalat Award for Arabic Children’s Literature is now open to accept submissions, with its organisers encouraging publishers, authors and illustrators of Arabic children’s and young people’s books from across the world to send in their entries before the end of August.

Organised by the UAE Board on Books for Young People (UAEBBY) and sponsored by Emirates Telecommunication Corporation (Etisalat), the Etisalat Award for Arabic Children’s Literature is worth a total of AED One million in its five categories. The winners of the eighth edition will be announced at the opening ceremony of the 35th edition of Sharjah International Book Fair, which runs from November 2-12, 2016, at Expo Centre Sharjah.

Aside from its monetary value, the Etisalat Award for Arabic Children’s Literature is recognised as the most important and prestigious accolade for children’s literature in the Arab World.

“We are delighted to announce that we are now able to start receiving submissions for the eighth edition of the Etisalat Award for Arabic Children’s Literature from authors, illustrators and publishers who have issued Arabic children’s titles in the past three years, or in the case of young adult literature,

in the past five years. They will be competing to win in the award’s five categories, which have been introduced to reward the very best creative talent and to inspire other literary artists to produce work of high merit. Ultimately, the award helps to bring up a generation of readers who have access to the best forms of knowledge, education and culture to elevate their lives now and in the future,” said Marwa Al Aqroubi, President of the UAEBBY Executivein the past five years.
