The Cheltenham Illustration Awards, an illustration award organised by the University of Gloucestershire(UK), has been recently opened for entries for 2018.
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.
The 2018 theme is: "Tangled Tales".
« Lives connected by strands of overlapping narrative. Bridging borders and boundaries, a world united by a tangle of tales.»
There are two main sections:
• Emerging and Established
• File image size: (Portrait or landscape) 50x40 cm max, 300dpi
• Image format: High quality JPEG
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 of their work and to those who are more established and are apart of the illustration world.
You can submit 4 entries for person.
Artwork must be supplied digitally via the transfer service WeTransfer.
Judging of entries will take place in August by a professional committee. Successful applicants will be notified by email mid September.
