Cheltenham Illustration Awards 2021 now is over!

Cheltenham Illustration Awards 2021: The Cheltenham Illustration Awards 2021 has been recently opened for entries and like every year invites all students, emerging and established illustrators worldwide to submit they best works.

Short description

The Cheltenham Illustration Awards, an ilustration competition organised by the University of Gloucestershire (UK), has been recently opened for entries in its 2021 edition.

The focus of the Cheltenham Illustration Awards has always been one of narrative. Visual storytelling, whether sequential or single image, gives scope to the imagination and opens up possibilities beyond the present moment.

This year the theme is: "The Story of a Better Tomorrow".

There are two main sections:

Emerging and Established

The Student category is open to all full-time students over 18 years of age worldwide. The Emerging and Established category is open to any newly practising illustrators who are wishing to gain exposure and to those who are more established.

Entries are limited to 5 per person.

An academic and peer selection panel will assess the entries for inclusion in the exhibition and Annual.

Submission requirements:

File image size: (Portrait or landscape) 50x40cm max, 300dpi
Image format: High quality JPEG

Who may enter?

The Cheltenham Illustration Awards 2021 is open to all students, emerging and established illustrators worldwide.


The selected work will be showcased at the Museum in the Park, Stroud, UK, other venues such as the London Book Fair, and published in the 2021 Cheltenham Illustration Awards Annual, which will be distributed to educators and publishers, internationally.
