The Golden Pinwheel International Young Illustrators Competition is an international event organized by the Shanghai Children’s Book Fair (CCBF). Since the first edition of the contest in 2015, we have received over 2,000 entries from 24 countries across the world. The competition is backed by multiple international illustrators associations. This year, leewiART has launched a strategic partnership with CCBF to provide a better competitive experience to all the participants.

An illustration exhibition featuring the competition’s 50 finalists will take place at Shanghai during CCBF at the World EXPO Exhibition & Convention Center (SWEECC). It will also feature the work of last year’s Grand Prix winners, Ye Luying and Fatemeh Nakhaei. A key feature of Shanghai International Children’s Book Fair, the Golden Pinwheel exhibition has been designed to give emerging illustrators an opportunity to gain business exposure and be part of a worldwide network that promotes exchange between young artists.
