The BICW Awards 2018 Winners list it out! We’d first like to extend a huge note to thanks to all the publishers who submitted their titles for the award.
The BICW Jury comprises of an experienced school educator, facilitators who use literature to foster a love for theatre in school children, and a school founder. Our entire panel of judges was thrilled to read the large variety of books shortlisted for this year.
After taking each of the judges’ opinions into account, we are happy to announce the winners of the Best of Indian Children’s Writing (BICW) – Contemporary Awards 2018! The winners are segregated by reading level.
