Be in with a chance to be part of the AOI's 40th anniversary in putting on illustration awards by entering the WIA2016 now.
For four decades, the AOI has presented the most comprehensive and significant awards for illustration in the UK. This year, after an incredibly successful first collaboration, we welcome back our international partner, the US based Directory of Illustration, to build on the success of the inaugural World Illustration Awards, honouring the most inspiring illustration throughout the world.
Any practising and new talent artist from all over the globe can enter their commissioned or self-initiated projects into one of the 8 categories. A jury of international industry insiders will cast their votes over all entries and select the best work and category award winners.
Shortlisted work will be promoted through our website and extensive networks. Award winning work and highlights will be featured in an exhibition at Somerset House and in a small publication to accompany it.
The exhibition then tours for a year.
