The Unofficial Gallery of the Tomie de Paola Award

Artwork by Diandra Mae
For the second year, SCBWI has announced the Tomie de Paola Award, an illustration contest that evolved from Tomie originally choosing promising artists from those showcasing at NYSCBWI. This year’s prompt was an excerpt from P.C. Asbjornsen’s version of “Chicken Little.
An unofficial gallery was created so participating illustrators could share and enjoy the variety of entries created by their peers. Click on the picture above to see over a hundred interpretations of Chicken Little. Information on the blog can be found here

UPDATE: 2011 Winner of the Tomie de Paola Award is here. Congratulation on the hard work, everyone!
