Nami Island, the official sponsor of IBBY Hans Christian Andersen Awards, initiated 'Nami Concours' to give picture book illustrators the opportunity to feature their works.

During this session, the jury members will describe the process, winners will give a short presentation of their works, and the Organizing Committee will share general information regarding the Nami Concours.
