World Illustration Awards

DEADLINE : 20th 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. The Awards receive over 2,000 entries from 60+ countries, 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 a high profile 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.
