The Association of Illustrators is the most important organisation representing the rights of professional illustrators in the UK. They also have an essential role upholding standards and encouraging students into long standing careers in the profession. Each year they hold their annual awards in numerous categories and I’m pleased to say I’ve been asked to judge the Public Realm category.
As a graduate illustrator many years ago the The Association of Illustrators was my first port of call to use their portfolio review service and more recently I have been a regular contributor to the AOI’s excellent magazine – Varoom.
The competition is open to illustrators worldwide and award winners will be announced at a prestigious ceremony at Somerset House, the major arts and cultural centre in the heart of London. Category winning illustration will be displayed in the spectacular Terrace Rooms at Somerset House and featured in an accompanying publication. This special exhibition will tour across the UK throughout 2015.
