There are lots of children’s publishers out there, but few who offer a multi-channel approach to print and digital work. We publish in eBook formats such as ePub and Fixed Layout Format as well as in physical print, and we're also creating titles that come alive with multimedia enhancements such as audio and video. Kids these days are quite savvy about screen content, so why not deliver the content to where the kids increasingly live?

IP Kidz has several established authors and illustrators on our list, including Libby Hathorn, Hazel Edwards, David P Reiter, Goldie Alexander, Edel Wignell, and Mark Carthew. We're constantly on the lookout for emerging talent – illustrators as well as authors.

IP Kidz titles are on State Premier's Reading Challenges throughout Australia. Here's a list of those on currently by State:

IP.Kidz is open to collaborations between Australian and overseas creators. Our very first picture book, Real Guns, by our Publisher, David Reiter, was illustrated by a well-known Irish artist, Patrick J Murphy. More recently, Anne Morgan's The Sky Dreamer was illustrated by Swiss artist Celine Eimann, who also published Lyli Meets the Stone-Muncher with us. Several of our titles have been translated into languages such as Spanish, German, French and Portuguese. We’re excited by the prospect of bringing together artists from across the globe.

We do want the work to be relevant to Australian children, but we will be marketing titles internationally as appropriate. Our content is being distributed internationally through partners such as Lightning Source, CreateSpace, Overdrive, Amazon and Apple, so we pay much more than lip service to electronic rights. Our picture books are generally published in "fixed layout" formats, to preserve the layout we originally intended. Making the most of our content makes sense to us and also benefits our artists.

We’re open year-round to proposals from authors, illustrators, digital artists and animators — or collaborative teams. After reviewing our Guidelines, please query us by email with your creative bio, a synopsis of the work and a representative sample. For picture books, you should send the complete work in storyboard layout (where the text is divided by page or spread). The work can be in a Word, Pages, InDesign, or Acrobat pdf attachment, with any images optimised for screen viewing.

Picture book authors don’t have to include illustrations. If we like your work, we’ll find an illustrator for it. However, if you’re one of those rare creative geniuses who can illustrate as well as write, or if you’ve teamed up with a visual artist pro,we're happy to view the whole package.

If we like your work, we’ll offer you a royalty contract. Then the fun begins!
