Founded in August 2016, BIBF Ananas International Illustration Exhibition is the official illustration exhibition of Beijing International Book Fair (BIBF), the world’s second-largest international book fair. As the organizer of the Ananas International Illustration Exhibition, both BIBF and Ananas Illustration have been dedicated to building a platform for illustrators around the world and generating more cooperation opportunities between publishers and distinguished illustrators. It has always been the intention and aspiration for us to be a promoter and witness to brilliant artworks.
In 2021, among 1406 series of works submitted from more than 30 countries, 60 series have been selected thorough the appraisal by expertes in publishing, illustration art and children’s book. The International Jury honoured 8 winners with the Ananas Grand Prix, the Illustration of China, the Grand Jury Prize and the New Talent Prize among finalists.
With all kinds of considerations and organizations, the selected illustrations were showcased in Beijing during Sep. 14~18th, atracting eyeballs from publishing houses, media, exhibitors and visitors from home and abroad.
During the past 6 years, we have been witness to great success that young illustrators harvested in publishing alongside the exhibition. Their efforts have been paid with experts and professionals’ acknowledgment as well as an increasing popularity among readers all over the world.
