Féminin féminin. Las mujeres de la Nouvelle Vague

Text and illustrations by Josefina Schargorodsky
Tres Tigres Tristes/Avenauta, Spain, 2019

What the jury said:
Féminin féminin steps outside the prevalently male viewpoint of the Nouvelle Vague to tell the extraordinary story of the women who played essential, creative roles in the innovative thrust that was this movement. The book gives us new insights into one of the paradigms of the history of cinema."



Text by Gema Sirvent
Illustrations by Ana Pez
Editorial Libre Albedrío, Spain, 2019

What the jury said:
Cinematográfico is a riotous cavalcade through the fascinating story of cinema, from its beginnings to the present day. In just forty pages, images and text use the language and techniques of film - laced with a refreshing dose of irony and surprise - to give young readers a precise account of the history of film."


Hello Monsieur Hulot
Monsieur Hulot à la plage
Hulot domino

Text and illustrations by David Merveille
Éditions du Rouergue, France, 2010-2015-2019

What the jury said:
“This Special Prize is a tribute to publisher Rouergue and author/illustrator David Merveille for their courage in taking on an iconic character in the history of cinema: Monsieur Hulot, created by Jacques Tati. Their publication is a distillate on paper of the poetic of cinema. While different and specific to each volume, the language captures all the delight of the original."
