OzCo to send Australian delegation to Shanghai
The Australia Council has announced it will support up to five Australian publishing delegates to attend the China Shanghai International Children’s Book Fair (CCBF) in 2018.
Expressions of interest are currently open to Australian rights sellers, literary agents and publishers interested in gaining experience in the Chinese publishing market, and will close on 29 May. The Australia Council will provide each delegate with a grant of $3000 towards the cost of attending the fair.
The fair, which runs from 9-11 November, is the only book fair dedicated to books for children aged 0-16 in the Asia Pacific region.
Successful applicants will also have the opportunity to apply for the CCBF Shanghai Visiting International Publishers Project, a fellowship project dedicated to children’s publishing that runs in Shanghai from 5-10 November. The program offers a small group of 10 international participants the opportunity to gain detailed insight into China’s publishing landscape, and CCBF have agreed to reserve a place in this program for one member of the Australian delegation.
