Sounds of the City
Deadline 26 September 2016
The Association of Illustrators (AOI), in partnership with London Transport Museum (LTM), is delighted to announce that submissions are now open for The Prize for Illustration 2017. This year the theme is Sounds of the City – an illustrated interpretation of urban sound.
The aim of the competition is to attract artwork for display in an exhibition at London Transport Museum, held from May – September 2017, that is colourful, inspiring and celebrates the sounds heard in the hubbub and quiet spaces of the UK’s vibrant, diverse, multi-layered cities.
Impress the judges with illustrated interpretation of the common, the curious, the persistent and the distinctive chorus of sounds we hear around us day and night and be in with a chance of having your work displayed at the famous London Transport Museum and winning the top prize.
Prizes will be awarded in three levels:
First prize: £2000 and display of the winning image on a London Transport Museum poster to be displayed on the London Underground.
Second prize: £1000
Third prize: £750
There is also the possibility that shortlisted images will be featured on merchandise sold in London Transport Museum’s shop.
The competition is open to illustrators and students of illustration throughout the world. The top 100 entries selected by a panel of independent judges will be displayed in an exhibition at London Transport Museum that will open in May 2017 and run until September 2017. The winners will be announced at a private award ceremony that will take place in May 2017.
The deadline for entry to The Prize for Illustration 2017 competition is 26 September 2016.
