Egmont Best New Talent Winners

| No Comments

Birgitta Sif and Marta Altés are the 2011 winners of Egmont's annual Best New Talent Award. They both received £250 each at their final year shows, as well as a publishing deal from Egmont.
Since the award ceremony, Egmont have commissioned Birgitta to illustrate a new fiction series called 'The Magnificent Moon Hare'. This is the first time a Best New Talent winner has illustrated a fiction book and Egmont is delighted to be using an award winner outside its picture book list. The first Moon Hare will publish in March 2012 with book two in August 2012.

Egmont will work with Marta Altés in the future as she is currently signed up exclusively to another publisher.

Now in its fifth year, The Egmont Best New Talent Award is presented to a graduate of the MA course in Children's Book Illustration at Anglia Ruskin University in recognition of their outstanding achievement on the course.
