Konkurs za najbolje ilustracije knjiga - 4. Festival ilustracije knjige „BookILL Fest”


     
O Festivalu
Festival ilustracije knjige „BookILL Fest” po četvrti put organizuju Banatski kulturni centar i Novosadski sajam u okviru 21. međunarodnog salona knjige u Novom Sadu. Salon knjige će se održati od 18. do 25. aprila 2015. godine, a sam Festival ilustracije knjige 20. aprila 2015. na Novosadskom sajmu.
„BookILL Fest” podrazumeva internet konkurs za najbolju ilustraciju knjige, izložbu printova izabranih i nagrađenih radova, proglašenje pobednika i prateće programe.

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 4 ilustracije knjige i to: obavezno bar 1 ilustraciju naslovne strane knjige i po sopstvenom izboru 3 ilustracije iz knjige, u digitalnoj formi  (JPG, TIFF, ili PSD formatu, RGB modu, 300-600 dpi, do formata A4).
Sve poslati na e-mail adresu bookillfest@gmail.com
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.
Mogu se slati i neobjavljena likovno-dizajnerska rešenja i objavljene knjige, kao skenirani gotovi radovi ili samo kao projekti. Ukoliko autor želi, može klasičnom poštom poslati i knjigu, eventualno i CD sa narezanim crtežima i podacima, na sledeću adresu: Banatski kulturni centar, JNA 35, 23273 Novo Miloševo.
Autori, takođe, treba u e-mailu da pošalju svoje podatke: ime, prezime, adresa, telefon, kratka profesionalna biografija i nazive radova, kao i u okviru koje, od dole navedenih, kategorija šalju svoje radove. Obavezno treba navesti da li je knjiga objavljena ili je još u projektu.
