London Transport Museum, in partnership with the Association of Illustrators (AOI), is delighted to announce that submissions are now welcome for the Serco Prize for Illustration 2014 – a competition open to illustrators and students of illustration throughout the world.
The theme for the 2014 competition is London Stories and the aim of the competition is to attract artwork for display that is colourful, inspiring and celebrates a vibrant, multi-layered London.
The first prize is £2000 and display of image on a London Transport Museum (LTM) poster. A second (£1000) and a third prize (£750) will also be awarded.
Here’s how the organizers describe the challenge:
Visually capture a well-known or lesser known narrative in a single image; all stories, current or historical, real or fictional, which feature this amazing city are welcome – your imagination is the limit. Stories could be those seen in a film or play, heard in poetry or music, read in literature or an urban myth. Impress the jury with your illustrated interpretation of a London story and be in with a chance of having your work displayed at the famous London Transport Museum and winning the top prize.
The top 50 entries selected by a panel of judges will be displayed in an exhibition at London Transport Museum that will open Friday 14 February 2014 and run until Sunday, 6 April 2014.
