The "Zeitgenössische Bilderbuchillustration,” an exhibition of contemporary illustration in picture books touring through Goethe Institutes all over the world will travel to Manila in June to mid July 2009. They will set up the exhibition at The National Library (June 8 - July 3, 2009).

Aside from setting up this high quality and remarkable exhibition of German picture books, the Goethe Institute has invited some illustrators to give a 3 day seminar/workshop on children's books illutration and design here in Manila.

The seminar/workshop is seen as a great opportunity for the exchange of ideas between book illustrators of two countries with very diverse cultures. This is also a excellent chance for the local illustrators to know the latest state-of-the art techniques in children's book illustrations and design in Germany.

CANVAS is now working with the Goethe Institute to invite and select some participants to the workshop to be held on June 8-10, 2009. All expenses will be covered by the Goethe Institute for the selected artists.

We invite all interested artists and illustrators to apply. Several slots are also reserved for students.

If interested, please email and please attach samples of your work on or before May 1, 2009.
