World Illustration Awards 2016 Competition

The Association of Illustrators, in partnership with Directory of Illustration, is pleased to announce the new Call for Submissions to the World Illustration Awards 2016.

The awards call for any practising or new talent artist from all over the globe, to enter their commissioned or self initiated projects into one of the eight categories. An international jury of industry insiders will cast their votes over all received entries and select the best work and category award winners.

Winners will gain worldwide publicity for their work and recognition within the industry. Highlights of the shortlist will be featured in a touring exhibition, starting at Somerset House in London, and accompanying publication, which will be distributed to major commissioners. The AOI and Directory of Illustration will promote all shortlisted work to their global network of illustration networks and commissioners.

The World Illustration Awards are open to illustrators in any country working in any medium or context.

The Association of Illustrators is a non profit organisation, founded in 1974 to promote illustration and protect illustrators rights. Along with this, for four decades now, the AOI has presented the most comprehensive and significant awards for illustration in the UK.
