Then join us for an exciting two-day virtual hackathon, jointly organised by Pratham Books and the Singapore Book Council, running up to the 2021 Asian Festival of Children’s Content! There is no registration fee for this workshop.

When?

Date and time to be announced.

What is the hackathon?

As part of this hackathon, participants will create simple, engaging bilingual picture books in two days, mentored by the Pratham Books team.

Selected participants will be required to sign a contract, releasing all work created during the hackathon under a CCBY 4.0 license. This is an open license that enables access to books to disenfranchised people across the world.

Your work can be in any of these languages: English, Hindi, Tamil, Chinese, Malay. The medium of instruction will be English, so a working knowledge of the language may be needed.
