Yu-Hua Lo won the 2018 Faber Andlyn BAME (FAB) Prize for Undiscovered BAME illustrators with her picture book 'Pepe Wants to Fly'.

Yu-Hua Lo is currently studying Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Art

The judges said: "The decision was unanimous that Yu-Hua should be our first place winner. Her character, Pepe the mole, is adorable, perfectly rendered in soft pencil. She uses a beautiful soft limited colour palette with clever and varied compositions, often playing with scale, keeping the reader engaged. It is pitch-perfect."

The Faber Andlyn BAME (FAB) Prize launched in December 2016 as a joint initiative between Faber Children’s and the Andlyn Agency with the purpose of helping discover new writers and illustrators from BAME backgrounds, and to provide a year-long mentoring scheme for one author and one illustrator.
