Bologna Book Fair
BolognaRagazzi Digital Award
Winners of the 2016 BolognaRagazzi Digital Award - the prize acknowledging world-class excellence in digital publishing and innovative apps - will be on hand at both the Exhibition in the Services Centre and the new Bologna Digital Media hall.
Don't miss the interesting selection for this year's Special Award Category - Disability - now a firmly established subject of children’s literature, thanks also to illustrated books. Winning entries will be showcased in the Services Centre at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, and of course can be seen at the stands of the winning publishers.
The Licensing Pavilion is sold out! Thanks to attendance by the licensing industry’s key players – like Disney, Warner, Viacom and Sanrio – Italy’s licensing tradeshow has this year achieved an important target: a 25% increase in exhibition space compared to the 2015 edition.
