The Association of Illustrators (AOI) in partnership with the London Transport Museum (LTM) invite submissions to the Poster Prize for Illustration to the theme of London Stories. Submissions are free.
Across the ages, London has produced and inspired countless stories. Fictitious or real characters and events in this amazing city have always held a fascination, from the anecdotal urban myth to grand tales of historic legend – from the everyday to the curious, and from the past to the present. The aim of the Poster Prize for Illustration competition 2019 is to attract artwork for display that is colourful, inspiring and celebrates the vibrant, multi-layered city that is London.
Artists are invited to visually capture a familiar or lesser-known narrative in a single image. All stories, current or historical, real or fictional which feature this amazing city are welcome – your imagination is the limit. Stories could be those seen in a film or play, heard in poetry or music, or read in literature. They may be family anecdotes, or an impression of your daily observations. Your visual story could be inspired by London’s history or contemporary city living. What stories does London have to tell?
Impress the jury with your illustrated interpretation of a London story and be in with a chance of having your work displayed at the famous London Transport Museum and winning the top prize.
The aim of the competition is to find 100 images depicting curious, interesting, real or fictitious stories about London to display at the famous Covent Garden Museum from February 2019 until the summer.
There are cash prizes for the three winners (£2000, £1000 and £750).
Deadline for submissions: Monday 16 July 2018
DEADLINE EXTENDED: Tuesday 31 July
