Kaunas International Illustration Biennial 2020

The Kaunas International Illustration Biennial 2020 is open for innovative concepts and experimental forms of expression, on the theme: Jump.

Illustrations will be selected by the international jury and all selected illustrations will be shown in Kaunas (Lithuania) International Illustration Biennial 2020, where the winners of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes will be congratulated.

The 2020 topic is briefly described on the official website.

Jump – spend one second in the intuitive space between earth and sky. Is it really not a flight or a moment of levitation? Jump is an infinite platform. An independent fortress. The fastest way to time travel. A shift in the system of energy. Single jump is needed to find yourself in another universe. A getaway? Rotating at a sharp angle? Dancing in a circle? What else can it mean?

Submitted illustrations must be created between January 2018 and July 2020.

All selected illustrations will be shown in Kaunas (Lithuania) International Illustration Biennial in October 2020. 1st prize includes diploma, space for personal exhibition in Kaunas (winner will have the opportunity to select suitable dates in 2021), set of professional art supplies. 2nd and 3rd prize include diplomas, sets of professional art supplies.

The jury will evaluate illustrations according to the following main criteria:

  • interpretation of the topic
  • relevance
  • originality/creativity
  • technicality
