The World Wide Fund For Nature WWF Germany introduced the campaign „No deforestation for children’s books!“ at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2009 and requested that the German children’s book publishers switch to the use of recycling or FSC paper. The topic of “tropical wood in children’s books” was explicitly addressed for the first time and awareness was created. At the same time the WWF initiated an online comic competition that is geared toward young people between 13 and 24 years of age. The idea is to continue the story of “Linda on the Trail of the Rain Forest Thieves” with individual drawings, collages or prints. In order to show the publishers that not only the WWF but also the readers want to stop deforestation for the sake of children’s books, the submitted works will be presented to the publishers as a compilation at the European Children’s Book Fair in Saarbrücken at the end of May 2010. The comics will be shown during the 14th Erlangen International Comic Salon and the best entries of the competition, chosen by a jury of comic artists, illustrators and WWF employees, will be honoured and presented with attractive prizes on Sunday, 6 June 2010.
