A little reblog from the association of illustrators!
This inaugural online competition requires entrants to submit three illustrations and a binding design. Entrants must be over the age of 18 and not already Folio Society published illustrators.
The winner will receive a £4,000 Folio commission to complete a collection of seven illustrations for the book, which will be published by The Folio Society in the autumn of 2011.
Five runners up will each receive a £500 cash prize, and a minimum of three of the six prizes will go to students.
Flora Craig, the House of Illustration’s Project Director, said: ‘This is an extremely exciting initiative for both the House of Illustration and The Folio Society. A unique chance for established and emerging illustrators alike, we hope to encourage and help launch the careers of the best new illustration talent.’
The winners will be announced at the beginning of February 2011. Please take note of the terms and conditions of entry. For example they do ask for the right to crop images ‘if necessary’.
