Hoda Haddadi Judged Best Illustrator at American Contest

Writer and illustrator Hoda Haddadi won the gold prize for the Best Illustrator at the 2017 Moonbeam Children’s Book Contest in Traverse City, Michigan, November 11.  She received the prize for her illustration of the English-language book ‘Drummer Girl’ written by Hiba Masood and published by Daybreak Press in Washington DC, Mehr News Agency reported. Haddadi, 55, won a golden award at the American Classics of literature (2017) for the same book. She has won many national and international awards including the Encouragement Prize at the Noma Concours for Picture Book Illustrations in Japan (2008).  Established in 2006, Moonbeam awards works in children’s publishing with all types of publishers and genres. According to the award’s website, it aims to draw attention to children’s books and their authors that have received less attention than they deserve. Each year’s entries are judged by expert panels of youth educators, librarians, booksellers and book reviewers of all ages. Winners receive gold, silver and bronze medals and stickers depicting a mother and child reading and silhouetted by a full moon.
