"Young", in this context, does not refer to the age of eligible participants but to the works that can be submitted: in the sense of "current and fresh". There’s no age restriction.
The main goal of the Young Illustrators Award is to present the partly undiscovered and vivid scene of creators from all over the world to the public and to encourage the creative exchange. These works are important statements of contemporary aesthetics, demonstrating the current visual power of the international illustration scene.
Three different categories are awarded:
• Illustration (including Pattern Design)
• Book Illustration / Book Art
There is no entry fee.
The short-listed artists will be announced on the Illustrative website in the beginning of September 2014.
