|2008 Children’s Picture Books International Forum:
The Feng Zikai Chinese Children’s Picture Book Award was founded with the support of the Chen Yet-Sen Family Foundation and Mrs. Daisy Chen. The Award recognizes the efforts of authors, illustrators and publishers of original, high quality Chinese children’s picture books.
In 2008, the organization’s committee, in association with Bring Me A Book Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Institute of Education, organized a forum to discuss the state of the Chinese children’s book industry and its importance to children’s learning and development.
A variety of local and overseas children’s picture book specialists attended the event to discuss how to stimulate the production of high-quality books and how to nurture a reading culture amongst children in the Chinese speaking world.
