How it works
Each country (after having received the T&T agreement) launches a call for entries, selects the best models and sends them to the International jury (half of the panel being visually impaired) towards the end of November. The selected entry, best of the year, can be produced by the workshop of Les Doigts Qui Rêvent in all languages of the participants wishing it. Each country distributes these books internally.
