Congratulations to Benji Davies who won Oscar’s First Book Prize 2014 for The Storm Whale’!

The £5000 award is held by The Evening Standard in memory of Oscar Ashton, a lover of stories who sadly passed away unexpectedly aged 3 1/2 years. Bright were ecstatic to represent 3 of the 5 Illustrators who made it to the final five and secured the book deal for a 4th. The judges picked the final five based on the belief that Oscar and his vivid imagination would have loved them too – and as said before, from all of us here at Bright, we are honored and truly humbled to be a part of such an amazing award. Congratulations to Benji & all the creatives involved – here’s to a Bright summer!
