That Special Bologna “Factor” and What’s on at CCBF

17 Jul - 2018

Preparations are in full swing for the sixth edition of the China Shanghai International Children’s Book Fair.

China Shanghai International Children’s Book Fair – the only book fair completely dedicated to children’s books and content in Asia Pacific – welcomes this year BolognaFiere/Bologna Children’s Book Fair as co-organizer of the whole event.

Brand New Lounges
Following the well-received experience of the Bologna New Entry Lounge, CCBF is creating this year three brand new Lounges:

• The Asia Pacific New Entry Lounge: a collective space grouping selected publishing houses in the Asia Pacific area, noted for their editorial program excellence, such as the shortlisted publishers for the Bologna awards.

• The BOP – Bologna Prize Lounge: this collective space will be totally dedicated to the worldwide winners of the six years old BOP – Bologna Prize for the Best Publishers of the Year. This Prize, organized  by the  Bologna Children’s Book Fair in partnership with AIE – Italian Publishers Association, awards those publishers who have most distinguished themselves for their creative and publishing excellence over the last year.

• The Strega Prize Lounge: in the last few years Bologna Children’s Book Fair has been paying more and more attention to children’s novel by organizing the Premio Strega Ragazze e Ragazzi which is the children’s literature special section of the most important Italian literary Prize. CCBF will welcome the winners and the shortlisted publishing houses in the Strega Prize Lounge with their wide range of international children’s novels.

CCBF Digital Media Area
This space will be a vibrant hub where publishers, developers, TV and cinema producers, animation studios, artists and authors can meet, show their products, technologies and projects, take advantage of the many opportunities offered by the digital, print and media worlds.
