The Association of Illustrators (AOI) is delighted to open submissions for the Poster Prize for Illustration 2019, in partnership with London Transport Museum (LTM).

Across the ages, London has produced and inspired countless stories. Fictitious or real characters and events in this amazing city have always held a fascination, from the anecdotal urban myth to grand tales of historic legend – from the everyday to the curious, and from the past to the present.
Artists are invited to visually capture a familiar 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, or read in literature. They may be family anecdotes, or an impression of your daily observations. Your visual story could be inspired by London’s history or contemporary city living.
The competition is open to all illustrators and students of illustration worldwide, regardless whether you are a member of AOI or not.
Award winners will be named at an award ceremony to be held at the London Transport Museum in January/February 2019.
