This year the theme is: Being Human
Humanity is self-evidently all around us: although all of us are unique and different, we all are born, live, love, feel, eat, sleep and move – and ultimately we all die. Your brief can explore the shared universal principles of being human, or celebrate the diversity and cultural mix that forms today’s society.
There are two main sections:
• Emerging and Established
The Student category is open to all full time students over 18 years of age worldwide. The Emerging and Established category is open to any newly practising illustrators who are wishing to gain exposure of their work and to those who are more established and are apart of the illustration world.
There is no entry fee.
Open worldwide to all students, emerging and established illustrators.
The selected work will be showcased at the Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum (UK) and other venues, and published in the 2014 Cheltenham Illustration Awards Annual, which will be distributed to educators and publishers.
