The most prestigious competition for creativity in illustration, the Communication Arts Illustration Competition, is now open for entries for 2016.

Any illustration first published or produced from January 2015 through January 2016 is eligible.

The winning entries will be distributed worldwide in the Communication Arts Illustration Annual, in print and on the iPad, and on commarts.com, assuring important exposure to the creators of this outstanding work. As a service to art directors, designers and art buyers, a comprehensive index will carry contact information of the illustrators represented.

Each winning entrant will receive a personalized Award of Excellence and award certificates issued for firms, individuals and clients.

CA’s Award of Excellence is one of the most-coveted awards in the industry. If chosen, winning places you in the highest ranks of your profession. Ask any creative director which competitions rank as the most influential and they’ll place Communication Arts at the top of the list.
