The Carmelite Prize is an exciting book award created to recognise excellence in children’s book illustration, with the aim of encouraging and inspiring the next generation of illustrators for children’s stories.
Acclaimed author Peter Bently has written the text for a new and original picture book called Where the Sea Meets the Sky and the Prize is inviting students, aged 18 and over, who are studying illustration and design at a further or higher education institution in the UK, to submit their illustration ideas for this book.
Any medium may be used, but final artwork must be flat so it can be scanned. Illustrations with novelty elements or 3D structures will not be eligible.
The judges are looking for a series of original and outstanding illustrations demonstrating competency and creativity in visual storytelling for children. The illustrations should show characterisation, continuity and progression, plus a range of emotion and pace appropriate to the text. Originality is key as is the consideration for text placement and page design.
Only one entry per person allowed.
There is no entry fee.
