About the Festival
Book Illustration Festival "BookILL Fest" is organized for the eighth time by the Banat Cultural Centre and Novi Sad Fair. Book Illustration Festival is going to take place at the Novi Sad Fair, during the International Book Fair, and in the Banat Cultural Centre Gallery in Novo Miloševo.
"BookILL Fest" includes internet competition for the best illustration of the book, exhibition of selected works, the announcement of winners, and exhibitions and lectures related to the book illustration.
"BookILL Fest" will be opened on the 5th of March 2018 at 13.00 the Novi Sad Fair (during the Book Fair which will be held from the 5th to 11th March) when two exhibitions will also be opened: "Serbian illustrators at the Biennial of Illustration Bratislava 2003–2017" and the exhibition of The 7th Book Illustration Festival BookILL Fest  2018. The announcement of winners and the award ceremony will be held in May 2019, at Banat Cultural Center in Novo Milosevo, as well as the opening of the exhibition of selected and awarded works.

The Aim of the Festival
The book illustration is important, but also a specific area in the process of graphic designing of books, which is why "BookILL Fest" seeks to draw attention to illustration and illustrators in public, but also to publishers who care about the equipment of their books.
The illustrated book is an art object that is signed by the co-authors: the writer and illustrator. Organizer affirms the principle that the text of the book and its visual component – illustration – are both equally important and valuable.
Contests for book illustrations are very rare in the world, and thus, this festival is more important.

Registration for the Contest:
The contest is open for authors from all over the world.
Each author submits at least 4 illustrations of the book: illustration of the cover page and illustrations from the inside of the book, in digital format (JPG, TIFF format, RGB mode, 300-600 dpi, up to A4).
Send everything to the e-mail address: bookillfest@gmail.com
Deadline for submission is: the 10th of April, 2019.
Authors can send illustrations done in all artistic and graphic techniques. The photographs which illustrate books will be also accepted. Authors can send illustrations incorporated into book design with the text or separated. Authors can send more illustrations created for different books. Authors can send cover illustrations only if the inside of the book is not illustrated. Unpublished illustrations will be accepted as well as published. Illustrated books that are published must not be older than two years.
The authors must also send their personal data by e-mail (name, surname, address, phone number, a short professional biography) titles of the works, and the specific category for submission. They should indicate whether the book was published or in the project.

Read this in English.


O Festivalu
Festival ilustracije knjige „BookILL fest” po osmi put organizuju Banatski kulturni centar i Novosadski sajam. Festival ilustracije knjige će se održati na Novosadskom sajmu, u okviru Međunarodnog sajma knjiga, i u Galeriji Banatskog kulturnog centra u Novom Miloševu.
„BookILL Fest” podrazumeva internet konkurs za najbolje ilustracije knjiga, izložbu izabranih i nagrađenih radova, proglašenje pobednika, gostujuće izložbe i prateće programe.
Festival ilustracije knjige će biti otvoren 5. marta 2019. od 13h na Sajmu knjiga u Novom Sadu kada će biti otvorene: izložba „Srpski ilustratori na Bijenalu ilustracije u Bratislavi 20032017.” i izložba Festivala ilustracije knjige BookILL fest 2018. Izložbe će biti dostupne posetiocima tokom trajanja Sajma knjiga od 5. do 11. marta 2019. godine na Novosadskom sajmu. Izložba izabranih i nagrađenih radova na konkursu BookILL festa 2019. i proglašenje pobednika održaće se maja meseca u Galeriji Banatskog kulturnog centra u Novom Miloševu.

Cilj Festivala
Ilustrovanje knjiga je važna, ali i specifična oblast u procesu dizajniranja i grafičkog oblikovanja knjiga, zbog čega „BookILL fest” teži da skrene pažnju na ilustraciju i ilustratore u javnosti, ali i na izdavače koji brinu o opremi svojih knjiga.
Ilustrovana knjiga je umetnički objekat koji potpisuju koautori: pisac i ilustrator. Organizator konkursa već godinama pokušava da afirmiše princip po kojem su u njoj tekstualni deo i njena vizuelna komponenta (ilustracija) podjednako važni, pri čemu bi i pisac i ilustrator trebalo da budu podjednako vrednovani, poštovani i uvažavani.
Konkursi za ilustraciju knjige su retki u svetu, a time je značaj ovog Festivala veći.

Propozicije konkursa
Konkurs je otvoren za autore iz celog sveta.
Svaki autor šalje najmanje 4 ilustracije jedne knjige i to: ilustraciju naslovne strane knjige i, po sopstvenom izboru, ilustracije iz knjige, u digitalnoj formi  (JPG ili TIFF formatu, RGB modu, 300-600 dpi, do formata A4) na e-mail adresu bookillfest@gmail.com najkasnije do 10. aprila 2019. godine.
Mogu se slati ilustracije rađene u svim likovnim i grafičkim tehnikama ili kompjuterskim doradama. Dolazi u obzir i fotografija koja je u funkciji ilustracije knjige.
Ilustracije se mogu, po izboru autora, slati uklopljene u dizajn sa tekstom, ili kao izdvojena dela.
Autori mogu slati i više ilustracija nastalih za različite knjige. Takođe, mogu se slati samo ilustracije korica, ukoliko unutrašnjost knjiga nije ilustrovana.
Mogu se slati i neobjavljeni radovi, koji su u projektu, jednako kao i objavljeni. Knjige u kojima su ilustracije objavljene ne smeju biti starije od dve godine.
Autori, takođe, treba u e-mailu da pošalju svoje podatke: ime, prezime, adresa, telefon, kratka profesionalna biografija, kao i u okviru koje, od dole navedenih, kategorija šalju svoje radove. Potrebno je navesti i naziv i ime autora knjige za koju su ilustracije nastale, kao i nazive pojedinačnih radova. Takođe, potrebno je navesti da li je knjiga objavljena (kod kog izdavača i koje godine) ili je još u projektu.
Ukoliko autor želi, može klasičnom poštom poslati i knjigu, eventualno i CD sa narezanim radovima i podacima, na sledeću adresu: Banatski kulturni centar, JNA 35, 23273 Novo Miloševo. Konkursni materijal poslat poštom se ne vraća.

Kategorije za slanje radova:
1. Ilustracija pesničke knjige
2. Ilustracija prozne knjige
3. Ilustracija knjige za decu
4. Foto-ilustracija knjige

U obzir dolaze i ilustracije knjiga van navedenih kategorije, koje će žiri posebno razmatrati.

Žiri/Umetnički savet
Žiri, koji će selektovati ilustracije za izložbu i nagraditi ilustracije (dodeljuje se po jedna nagrada za svaku od navedenih kategorija, kao i posebna priznanja), radiće u sastavu: Slobodan Ivkov, predsednik, Sibila Petenji Arbutina i Senka Vlahović.

* Organizator zadržava pravo da radove sa ovogodišnjeg i prethodnih konkursa i izložbi predstavi i u drugim gradovima i zemljama. Takođe zadržava pravo da štampa tematsku publikaciju (katalog, monografiju, flajer i sl.) sa pristiglim radovima u propagandnu ili retrospektivnu svrhu izložbe, odnosno za afirmaciju projekta konkursa „BookILL Fest”, te u svrhu eventualne naučnoistraživačke analize ilustracije kao likovne discipline u svetlu ovog projekta.
