Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava (BIB) is an international competitive exhibition of illustrations for books for children and young adults, and has been held since 1967. BIB takes place under the patronage of UNESCO and its non-governmental organisation IBBY. As laid down by the statute of BIB, the selection of works is carried out by curators from individual countries together with BIB´s curator general. The BIB Secretariat is responsible for organisation, while matters of expertise relating to illustration for children and young adults are the domain of the BIB International Department. This Department is a part of BIBIANA, the International House of Art for Children, which takes its name from BIB.
