Da jeg besøkte Bokfestivalen i Frankfurt tidligere i høst, var jeg samtidig på møte i European Illustrators Forum der jeg representerte Grafill. Denne gangen var det årsmøte og valg av nytt styre i EIF.
Jeg takket ja til å stille som presidentkanditat, og ble med det valgt inn som president i foreningen. Vervet er toårig.

Her er litt info om European Illustrators Forum:

EIF is an organisation of national associations of illustrators in European countries. EIF will defend the rights of illustrators and promote illustration within Europe.

The European Illustrators Forum is a voice for illustration in Europe. It provides a platform for meetings and contacts between all European professional associations of illustrators and image makers. It communicates the values of illustration and image making and furthers exchange of knowledge and critical debate between professional illustrators and their clients across Europe through conferences, exhibitions, research and education. The European Illustrators Forum represents its members’ common interests by liaising with the authorities of the European Union and other networks relevant to the profession of illustrator.
