Prize of Illustration 2017: Sounds of the City

Share

City:

The Association of Illustrators (AOI) in partnership with London Transport Museum (LTM), is delighted to announce that submissions are now open for The Prize for Illustration 2017.

This year the theme is Sounds of the City – an illustrated interpretation of urban sound.

We are surrounded 24/7 by sound in our cities. It shapes our experiences and our moods. Whether it’s the sound of people going about their daily lives – living, working, visiting or enjoying cultural, sporting or musical activities – or the sounds of nature within the city, the exhibition will show the artist’s relationship with sound, heard within the environment of a city context.

ELIGIBILITY
The competition is open to illustrators and students of illustration throughout the world. The top 100 entries selected by a panel of independent judges will be displayed in an exhibition at London Transport Museum that will open in May 2017 and run until September 2017. The winners will be announced at a private award ceremony that will take place in May 2017.

ABOUT
The aim of The Prize for Illustration 2017 competition is to attract artwork for display in an exhibition at London Transport Museum that is colourful, inspiring and celebrates or is inspired by the sounds heard in the hubbub and quiet spaces of the UK’s vibrant, diverse, multi-layered cities. The exhibition will feature 100 shortlisted illustrations.

It is desirable, but not essential, to include within the submitted artwork a representation of a mode or modes of transport. These modes include:  Buses, Coaching, Cycling, Dial-a-Ride, Docklands Light Railway, Emirates Airline,  London Overground,  London Underground, River, Roads,  Taxis and private hire,  TfL Rail, Trams  and Walking. The use of appropriate logo/s in lieu of vehicular/mode of transport portrayal is acceptable.

  • First prize: £2000 and display of the winning image on a London Transport Museum poster to be displayed on the London Underground.
