Golden baobab trees are the sort of things you will only encounter in children’s literature. Which probably explains why The Baobab Prize, a literary prize for children’s literature has rebranded as The Golden Baobab Prize. Their new website wears new livery, with illustrations from Yvonne Robinson that will also stop an adult in his tracks. The current submission cycle ends 20th June, 2011, but 2010 winners will be announced on 8th November.
Current judges include, Jay Heale, Nana Ayebia, Muthoni Garland, Bibi Bakare-Yusuf, Cynthia Pon and Meshack Asare.
