The Young Illustrators Award is one of the most internationally renowned competitions rewarding creativity and innovation in personal contemporary illustration and graphics. It encourages and supports designers in their artistic practice and offers them an internationally recognized platform from which to launch their careers.
"Young", in this context, does not refer to the age of eligible participants but to the works that can be submitted: in the sense of "current and fresh". There’s no age restriction.
The main goal of the Young Illustrators Award is to present the partly undiscovered and vivid scene of creators from all over the world to the public and to encourage the creative exchange. These works are important statements of contemporary aesthetics, demonstrating the current visual power of the international illustration scene.
Three different categories are awarded:
• Illustration (including Pattern Design)
• Book Illustration / Book Art
There is no entry fee, but a registration fee is required.
Open to anyone worldwide.
The nominees will be awarded by an international jury consisting of leading art directors, experts and editors.
The short-listed artists will be announced on the Illustrative website in the beginning of September 2014.
