The BICW – Contemporary Award 2018 aims to recognise and reward the best books for children in the age group of 6 to 12 years from publishers across the country. Here is how it all began.

Aside from recognition, the BICW Award affords the winning titles a minimum guarantee purchase (anywhere between 200 to 2000 copies) which will, in turn, be distributed to schools across South India.
