Thank you to all who participated in our annual #KTIllustrates Contest! While the judges had a tough time choosing between the entries for the prompt, “When we begin to play,” the vote went to the image that captured the spirit of the prompt the best. The contest was open to any form (spot, spread or cover design) and in any medium, so long as it kept the interpretation of the prompt as it would apply to children’s books.

The winner is set to receive a gift certificate to ArtSupply Warehouse and will have a feature interview article for Kite Tales coming soon in 2023. So let’s give a hand to our winner!
