طيري ياطيارة Wins Etisalat Prize 2011! | Read Kutub KIDS

Congratulations to أماني العشماوي and Nahdet Masr on winning the 2011 Etisalat prize from a field of very worthy books.

The field for 2011 was strong, and unlike 2010, when the judges said they all just knew immediately that النقطة السوداء was the winner, judge Wendy Cooling said that this was “a really rich year for books for young children” in Arabic.

Other judges included last year’s winner, Walid Taher, eminent children’s book author and publisher Taghreed Najjar, Dr. Sabah Issawy, and Wafaa Terawska.

The 1 million AED Etisalat prize is shared by author and publisher.
