1st National Children's Book Awards

Saturday, April 10, 2010
I'd like to share a few pictures from the signing of the memorandum of agreement between the National Book Development Board - Philippines and the Philippine Board on Books for Young People for the 1st National Children's Book Awards.

All photos and information are courtesy of children's and young adult book editor Ramón "Rayvi" Sunico, the publishing representative to the Philippine Board on Books for Young People. Thank you, Rayvi!

This is the logo of the National Children's Book Awards, designed by children's book illustrator Ruben “Totet” De Jesus.


And this is a model of the trophy for the awards. Isn't it adorable?! The final version will be a ceramic trophy mounted on a mahogany base with a brass plate.


Here are members of the National Book Development Board - Philippines and the Philippine Board on Books for Young People discussing the awards before the signing of the memorandum of agreement.


And here are pictures of the actual signing!
