    Organised by Tragaluz Editores (a book publisher located in Medellin, Colombia), the fourth edition of the Tragaluz International Illustration Award asks illustrators to choose a fragment of a book they have always dreamed to illustrate.

    The text can be of any genre, and can be by a dead or a living author from any nationality. The selected fragment must not exceed one page (one page from the chosen book) or a text with 2,000 characters including spaces, in Spanish or English.

    Based on the chosen fragment, whose source must be cited, the participant should make an illustration and send a digital copy to concurso@tragaluzeditores.com

    The attached illustration must be a high-quality JPG image file (100% – RGB). It can be either horizontal or vertical in direction, and must not exceed 5 megabytes and 150 dpi. Submitted illustrations have to be unpublished and have not been submitted to other competitions recently.

    The artists will keep ownership of their works.

    There is no entry fee.

    Eligibility


    Open to illustrators from all countries.

    Prize


    The winner will sign a contract for 7,000,000 COP (approx. 2,425 USD) to create the illustrations for a book that Tragaluz will publish.

    The results will be published on Tragaluz's website and social networks (Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook) during Fiesta del Libro y la Cultura de Medellín, September 15, 2017.
