Yusof Gajah IllustrationAward (YGIA)

A picture is worth a thousand words. 

We believe that illustrations in children’s books are important in evoking a child’s creative and limitless imagination. 

Illustration is all about the art of storytelling.

About creating something new. It’s about the reader, and it’s also about you. It’s about what imagination you want your reader to have, and what action you want your reader to take at the end. To begin this creative and colourful  journey, we present you the Yusof Gajah Illustrators Award at our very first Selangor International Book Fair.

Calling for entries.
