The Waterstones’ Picture This competition for the best new picture illustrator is making another comeback this year! One lucky unpublished illustrator will get to illustrate the award winning Michael Morpurgo’s remake of the nation’s most loved fairytale…
So what is the nation’s favourite fairytale?
Are you stickler for the Three Little Pigs? Maybe you’ve got a soft spot for Cinderella and her prince charming? Perhaps the Enourmous Turnip or the Magic Porridge Pot is more up your street? Go and vote for your favourite here.
After Britain has decided on their favourite fairytale, the quest for the next top new illustrator will commence. The fairytale which has enchanted the public the most is to be announced at the Hay Festival in late May. On the next day, The Daily Telegraph and Waterstones.com will declare the lucky winner of the illustration competition! Morpurgo’s own version of the fairytale will then be published in 2012 as a beautifully illustrated picture book.
