Society of Illustrators calls application for Annual Competition Illustrators 63: Call for Entries. For 63 years, the Annual has provided a platform to our global community to express, through illustration the events and movements of our times. The significance of the events of this year, documented through your visual narratives, will become an important archive. Furthermore, generations of talented illustrators have captured history- in all its heartbreak, challenge, and triumph- with their pens and paper and screens.
By submitting work, you are supporting an endeavor much greater than the exhibit and book. Basically, revenue generated from the competition enables us to continue to provide intensive educational, arts and social programming for underserved communities, student scholarships, events and exhibits, off-site community outreach programming and our comics festival, general operating costs, and the maintenance and conservation of our extensive Permanent Collection housed at the Museum of Illustration.
Gold and Silver Medals will be presented to the illustrators and art directors whose works are judged the best in each category.
Any illustration created or initially published between October 1, 2019, and November 1, 2020, that has not been entered or accepted in the Annual previously, is eligible. International entries are welcome. Furthermore, each submission will receive consideration by every member of the jury for its category.
All commissioned work, whether published (killed projects included) or not; should be entered in one of the four categories: Editorial, Book, Advertising, and Institutional. Both commissioned and self-generated projects are eligible to be entered into the Surface/ Product Design category. Only self-generated projects should be entered in the Uncommissioned category.
