Picture Book Contest
Every year the Fondo de Cultura Economica presents the picture book contest A la orilla del viento, one of the most prestigious in the Spanish-speaking world. For the XIX edition, Maru Aguzzi, our director, was summoned to be part of the jury along with Diego Bianki and Gabriel Pacheco.
After an exhaustive work of reviewing the material, already internally refined by the FCE, and a long talk between the three jurors, it was decided to choose the work with the name The Forest Within Me, belonging to the Spanish illustrator Adolfo Serra and whose authorship was only known at the time of choosing it as the winner.
Part of the award includes the edition of the winning work to be part of the A la orilla del viento collection, so the book can be bought through the FCE or at any bookstore.
