The Tomie dePaola Illustrator Award is given annually to an illustrator of promise chosen by Tomie himself. The award consists of full tuition, transportation and accommodations to the New York Winter Conference held in Manhattan. The winning piece of art will be featured at the Portfolio Showcase at the annual winter conference in New York. About Tomie.

SCBWI reserves the right not to confer this award in any given year.


 

Last year's two-part format was a departure from the past, and this year we are returning to the original format of the award. Tomie will be announcing the guidelines in September on our website, and the deadline will be December 15, 2015. The winner will be announced at the beginning of January, 2016.
