While we are on a way to the New Moscow International Children's Book Fair launch, we invite once again professionals to join the special MICBF's events at Moscow International Book Fair in September 2020.
This programme that aims to boost the integration of Russian and International publishing societies will be organized by MIBF in association with Bologna Children's Book Fair.

The programme will reflect the outstanding progress that the Russian children's book publishing made in recent years, to designate its place on the international scene, to create new relationships and to strengthen existing ties in the professional community.
Illustration as a vital part of children's book is in our focus. A new generation of illustrators raised within the Russian artistic tradition is increasing in visibility worldwide.

To broaden the influence of visual narratives, this part of the MIBF's programme will be devoted to picture books, comics, graphic novels, fanzines, artist's books. The floor will be given to art groups, art and design schools, art - print enthusiasts.

MICBF's project at MIBF2020 will become the international festival of books, illustrations and visual culture and the catalogue of creative forces rapidly developing on the Russian stage.
For the second time MIBF shall host a special edition of the Illustrator's Survival Corner, a three-day educational marathon created in partnership with Bologna Children's Book Fair and Mimaster Illustrazione (Milan). For years it has been a core event of the Bologna Children's Book fair and one of the leading educational projects in the illustrator's world.

This year all events of ISC will be held online, which will allow young professionals from around the globe, wherever they physically are, to meet Russian and international experts working at the front lines of children's publishing. Our focus this year will be on creative and practical aspects of illustrated non-fiction and graphic novel.
