I just got this email:
Just this evening (French time) received a surprise email from the SCBWI Romania RA, Alina Darian.
She has a last minute opportunity for published SCBWI illustrators.
She has just found a digital printer in Bucarest Romania who will print out work for an exhibition THIS Sunday.
We are assured the print quality will be good.
Alina apologizes for being so last minute, but it’s an interesting opportunity if you happen to have a digitized illustration that fits with the exhibition theme. o You are welcome to contactl PAL illustrators in your regions about this.

What does SCBWI represent in Romania?

SCBWI is represented in Romania since March 2008 and among its objectives is to offer the authors and the illustrators of children’s books the perfect setting for a good work and cooperation environment, several annual project presentations and international workshops. Another objective is to present the children’s illustrated books situation around the world by organizing exhibitions for children, their parents and teachers.

Until present time, SCBWI Romania means:- participation at the International Children’s Book Fair and SCBWI Conference in Bologna, April 2008- an exhibition of foreign illustration for children’s books at GAUDEAMUS – November 2008 ( inauguration of SCBWI Romania)
