Samsung KidsTime Authors’ Award

The Samsung KidsTime Authors' Award (SKTAA) is a joint initiative between the National Book Development Council of Singapore (NBDCS) and Samsung Electronics. This award seeks to turn both published and unpublished picture books from ASEAN into digital apps for the Samsung KidsTime platform, so that local and regional content in its native language can reach a much wider audience.
