  • the illustration of four covers of novels or other books for children.
  • the writing of one or more plays, operettas, musicals or other theatrical vehicles for children published or produced commercially, or similar writing of film for children.
  • performers must be professionals who are paid for performances for children.
* Writers or illustrators of self-published, print-on-demand or other books not published by a recognized trade or educational publisher can join CANSCAIP as a Friend, but not as a Member. CANSCAIP declines to individually assess a candidate's self-published work, as becoming professionally published by a recognized publisher is a reasonably objective benchmark of editorial quality.
