Cheltenham Illustration Awards

WHO:

Open to all students, emerging and established illustrators.

WHAT:

The theme for 2017’s Exhibition and Annual : Tales Through Others’ Eyes.

The focus of the 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; what happened before? What happens next?

‘A single experience can lead to many different responses – no two people see the world alike. It’s an easy thing to draw from life when informed by our own experience but to see through the eyes of others requires that we set out on a journey of imagination and empathy; to see clearly we might have to forget our own prejudices and preconceptions. There are a million lives beyond our own – choose to inhabit the world of another and, seeing through their eyes, make an image that explores their distinctive, or unique, vision.’

WHEN:

Deadline for submissions: June 1, 2017
