2016 SCBWI Tomie dePaola Award Winners
The task for this year’s award was about UNIQUE VISUALIZATION of the MAIN CHARACTER.
As I warned, “So often, I have seen illustrators resort to generic depictions of the star of the story – too ‘designed,’ too ordinary, too much like characters already seen in media, especially on TV and video games.”
That said I have chosen the following illustrators:
First Place – Lisa Cinelli
Second Place – Adrienne Wright
Third Place – Christee Curran-Bauer
Three Honorable Mentions:
One Special Mention for “the unique style”: Yaara Eshet
