OPPORTUNITY: World Illustration Awards
The Association of Illustrators invites illustrators in any country working in any medium or content to enter the World Illustration awards. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 6 February 2018.
Each year, the World Illustration Awards invite entries through an open call. Projects in any media can be entered into eight categories and can be submitted as either Professional entries, or as New Talent for work by students or recent graduates.
Delivered by the AOI in partnership with the Directory of Illustration, the awards are widely regarded as the world’s most prestigious illustration accolade and each year over 2,000 entries from 60+ countries are received, showcasing the breadth of illustration being made around the world today.
The Awards are judged by high profile, globally recognised industry professionals and commissioners.
All 200 shortlisted entries feature online and in a printed catalogue that is distributed to over 1,300 major commissioners worldwide.
Winners feature in an exhibition at Somerset House, which is accompanied by an industry events programme, and a series of family events sponsored by Walker Books.
The exhibition then tours the UK and internationally, and is seen by over 50,000 visitors over the course of the year.
