Anat Warshavsky received the Israel Museum Ben-Yitzhak Award for the Illustration of a Children's Book
The Bezalel Academy for Art and Design in Jerusalem congratulates Anat Warshavsky, a graduate of the Department of Visual Communications, on winning the Israel Museum Ben-Yitzhak Award for the Illustration of a Children's Book, for her illustrations in the book "Zrubavel and Zelpa" by Ronit Hacham (Agam Yaldut, 2019).
In addition, all the illustrators who received a Certificate of Merit, are graduates of the Department as well: Itay Bekin for his illustrations in the "Book of Silences (The Really Important Ones!), by Oren Lavie, Naama Benziman for her book "Noni and Noni-more", Omer Hoffman for his book "The story about Yoav who mailed his family by post", and Einat Tzarfati for her book "Castle in the Sand".
The Judges' reasoning: "The wild and allegedly ugly illustration combined with the political - universal text form the book into a complex work of art, which offers the children of tomorrow the option of pragmatic activism which holds beauty as well."
