2016 SCBWI Tomie dePaola Winners

2016 SCBWI Tomie dePaola Award Winners

 

From Tomie:

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

Wright_Adrienne_tomie

 

Third Place – Christee Curran-Bauer
