Our seventeenth Book Dash will be taking place online in May this year and a selection of talented, generous creatives will join us to make beautiful new books in a 12 hour sprint, and help us ensure that every child owns a hundred books by the age of five!
Applications to take part in the event are now closed. Keep an eye out for future calls on our social media pages or by signing up to our newsletter.
We look forward to creating new books on the 15th May with the incredible cohort of creatives below, situated in 8 countries across the world. Thank you to CourierIT for sponsoring the delivery of their special Book Dash hampers!
After the event, we’ll translate, print and distribute copies of these books to children for free, in line with our vision that “Every child should own a hundred books by the age of five.”
This event is made possible by the IBBY-Yamada Fund, a project of IBBY, the International Board for Books for Young People. Thank you to IBBY South Africa for nominating us, and to all who are making it possible for us to make beautiful new books!
