Feng Zikai Chinese Children's Picture Book Award

Feng Zikai Chinese Children's Picture Book Award

The Feng Zikai Chinese Children’s Picture Book Award is a biannual award aimed at promoting original, quality Chinese children’s books and recognising the efforts of authors, illustrators and publishers. The Award is named after one of China’s best-known illustrators, the late Feng Zikai.

The Award is sponsored by the Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation, a Hong Kong based charitable institution, which supports childhood literacy projects. It will be handed out for the first time in July 2009 and, thereafter, every other year.

The Award is comparable to the Caldecott Medal, which honours the most distinguished American picture book for children published in the United States each year.

Famous quotes containing the words book, award, picture and/or children:

    He wrote in prison, not a History of the World, like Raleigh, but an American book which I think will live longer than that. I do not know of such words, uttered under such circumstances, and so copiously withal, in Roman or English or any history.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    It’s no go the picture palace, it’s no go the stadium,
    It’s no go the country cot with a pot of pink geraniums.
    It’s no go the Government grants, it’s no go the elections,
    Sit on your arse for fifty years and hang your hat on a pension.
    Louis MacNeice (1907–1963)

    she gives her children neither sense nor money
    Who slouch arouond the world with a gesture and a brogue
    And a faggot of useless memories.
    Louis MacNeice (1907–1963)
