The next international edition of the competition will take place from 6th to 8th October 2024 at Lublin (Poland).
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.
Deadline for sending the entries (in progress):
- Belgium: 1st August 2024
- Czech Republic: between January and April 2024 (to be specified later)
- France: 30th January 2024
- Netherlands: 1st July 2024

- Russia: (participation suspended in 2024 by the T&T jury due to the jury meeting in Poland)

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)!
