One of the most exciting new features of this edition is the inclusion of the FLIC Prize, which will be awarded for the first time by a mixed jury composed of three young readers and three experts in children’s and young adult literature.

This award will address the issue of censorship in children’s and young adult literature, exploring how this phenomenon manifests itself in a seemingly free world.

The workshops and activities offered at FLIC cover a wide range of topics, from illustration and creation to oral storytelling and reading aloud.
