How to participate

The next international edition of the competition will take place in 2021, October the 21, 22 & 23th at Padova (Italy)!

Anyone living in one of the 23 participating countries is free to participate. To do so, she/he sends her/his tactile illustrated book entry (original creation or adaptation of an existing book), accessible to visually impaired young people from 0 to 12 years old (all details in the Rules), to the T&T national partner which will organize the selection process. Each entry must be accompanied by a Registration form.

If there is no T&T national partner in your country, you unfortunately cannot participate, unless you can find an organization willing to become a new T&T partner!

The T&T national partner of the national selection process that receives the entries sets up a jury to select up to 5 best entries. The tactile illustrations, text, binding, colors and contrast, style, the reproducibility of the book, and finally the manageability of the format are examined (see our Tips).

This same selection occurs simultaneously in all 23 participating countries.

The best entries from each country (maximum 5) are then sent to the international T&T jury which is composed of representatives from the 8 founding member countries. The T&T Jury meets, over two days, to decide which entries to award the 1st prize, 2nd prize, 3rd prize and the 8 “Judges’ Favorites” (one per judge)!
