International Tactile Book Competition:

The American Printing House for the Blind (APH) is joining Typhlo & Tactus
(TT) in an international competition to promote tactile books.  TT, an
organization comprised of western and eastern European nations, has
conducted an annual tactile book competition for the past decade.  This
year's competition has been opened to the world.  A panel of U.S. judges,
including APH, will review each entry.  The top five books will be sent
overseas for final adjudication by an international panel of children and
adults with visual impairments, as well as professionals in the field.

A single winning entry will be chosen, along with ten shortlisted books.  If
you live in the U.S. or U.S. outlying areas, this is your chance to create a
completed tactile book, designed for a child with visual impairment from
birth to 12 years of age, by Friday, September 2, 2011!  The TT website
provides the competition guidelines as well as a list of suggestions for
desirable features in your tactile book creation!  All entries must be
accompanied by an official TT entry form, found at the TT website

U.S. entries can be sent to:

American Printing House for the Blind
