Organised by Tragaluz Editores, the 5th edition of the Tragaluz International Illustration Award asks illustrators to draw "what a house means for you".
This year’s main image is the house. We have just built a dwelling in Medellín that is home to our publisher house along with other spaces designed for our community of readers, illustrators, curious individuals, fans of the editorial work… In addition to our offices, the house has a café-bookshop, a gallery, a workshop room and a co-working area.
When we embarked on this project, we pictured each room of the house, imagining what we wanted to do in this space, how we would inhabit it, what story it would tell… This year’s invitation is to draw "what a house means for you". What it looks like, who inhabits it, what makes it a place one wants to go once and again.
