Azerbaijan's People's artists Hamida Omarova and Rafiq Aliyev, honored art workers Ayaz Salayev and Orkhan Fikretoglu, honored artists Bahram Bagirzade, Murad Dadashov, Senuber Iskenderli and Nargiz Jalilova, Rahib Azeri and Azer Garib have supported the Second Booktrailer Festival to be held in Baku.

In their video messages, the celebrities encourage the youth to participate in the project.

The festival, which takes place under the slogan "Promote a book, get promoted with a book!" is timed to the World Book Day or World Book and Copyright Day, held annually on April 23.

Booktrailers are short videos that promote a book or an author, providing a good illustration of the book content. Book trailers are a form of advertising for a book. Produced by publishers, and sometimes authors themselves, they are tools to pique interest in the novel and raise their popularity.

The winner will get a prize in the amount of 1000 manats ($ 558), while the winners of the second and third places 800 manats ($446) and 500 manats ($279), respectively.

Send your booktrailers via and [email protected] until April 10, 2017.
