The Troisdorf Picture Book Award is the only German prize to specifically award the illustrations of picture books. It thus recognises outstanding achievements in the area of artistic picture book illustation. An independent jury selects the winner from all entries, and in this way offers a diversified view of the current picture book scene in the German language markets. It is awarded every two years.
Amongst the prize winners are:
2017: Antje Damm wins 2nd prize with The Visit
2009: Tobias Krejtschi wins 1st prize with Clever Mama Sambona
2000: Nadia Budde wins 2nd prize with Sad Tiger Toasts Tomatoes
