The Crystal Kite Awards by SCBWI

I’ve decided to enter the annual Crystal Kite Awards, a peer-given award to recognize great books from 15 SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators) regional divisions around the world.

The rules are very specific:

  • Self-published books cannot be nominated.
  • I’m allowed to promote the award, but not my specific title, lest I be disqualified.

You do have to be an SCBWI member to vote, so I’m really just putting this out here in the hope of good vibes!

Here is the link to last year’s winners, including more information.

Good luck to everyone who’s entered!
