Following on from the success of The Outsider and The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories, the book to be illustrated this year is Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.
The competition is open to anyone over 18 who is not a Folio Society published illustrator. The first prize is £4,500 commission from The Folio Society and there are five runners-up available, each £500 in cash.
The Book Illustration Competition is Held for the 3rd Time – Illustrate Scenes from Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World
Each entrant should illustrate three scenes from the book Brave New World. You can select any three scenes from the book and also design and submit a binding to accompany the three illustrations.
Only one entry per person is accepted.
The first prize will be a Folio Society commission. The winner will be asked to provide a total of 8 illustrations for the final book, as well as a binding design, and must agree to complete the commission within the given deadline (March 2013). The winner will be paid £4,500 for the commission. Five runners-up will receive prizes of £500 cash. Three prizes of the six will be awarded to student entries.
