For the first time, Frankfurt's fellowship program will be geared exclusively toward industry professionals working in children’s and YA books. Additionally, the fair is expanding the circle of applicants to include those involved in the digital preparation and distribution of content for children’s books, such as product managers and developers.

Founded in 1998 to mark the 50th anniversary of the fair, the fellowship program aims to support "information exchanges and networking, while enhancing the professionalism of international publishers, editors, agents and licensing personnel."
