The Association of Illustrators, in partnership with the Directory of Illustration, is back again with the World Illustration Awards, the most comprehensive and significant awards for illustration in the UK.

We’re pleased to announce that the Call for Entries is now open. Enter by February 6, 2017, for your work to be considered.

Work entered into the World Illustration Awards will be reviewed by a jury of distinguished and international industry professionals. The competition shortlist always reflects exceptional work by illustrators making an outstanding contribution to visual culture.

Award winners will be announced at a prestigious ceremony at Somerset House, the major arts and cultural center in the heart of London. Selected works will be exhibited in their spectacular Terrace Rooms before touring the UK, as well as being showcased in an accompanying publication, which will be circulated to major commissioners of illustration.

Both Professionals and Students/New Talent are eligible to enter.
