The 4th Etisalat Award for Arabic Children's Literature is now open for submissions from Arab or international publishing houses that publish Arabic-language books for children ages 0-14.
This annual award, sponsored by the Etisalat Telecom Company, is worth Dhs1m, making it one of the most important and the richest award for children's literature in the Arab world. Half of the award money goes to the publisher of the winning book, and the remaining half is divided between the author and illustrator.
Books submitted must be written in the Arabic language, must be original works (not translated or reproduced) and must have been published no earlier than three years prior to the year of the call for entries. In addition, entries should not be recipients of any previous local, regional, or international awards. Each publishing house is allowed to submit a maximum of three titles.
