The Worldwide Picture Book Illustration Competition

Walker is looking for outstanding up-and-coming illustrators. Are you one of them? Send us samples of your work and earn international fame!

Are you one of the inspiring, unique picture book artists we are looking for? If so, please send us three of your most unique illustrations that together tell a story (the story might already exist or be one of your own). The illustrations should not have been published before.

Upload your entry, with accompanying text, before the newly extended deadline of May 31 2015. If you pass the first (digital) selection, you will be asked to send us hard copies of your work.

A professional jury will select the five best entries in The Netherlands, Belgium, South Africa, Germany and the United Kingdom.

• Works of the twenty winning artists will be part of a travelling exhibition, which will be shown, amongst other places, at The Hive in Worcester (UK), the Shanghai Public Library (CN), Bilderbuchmuseum in Troisdorf (D), and the Centrale Bibliotheek in Rotterdam (NL).
• The final selection will be published in an international catalogue and presented to all famous picture book publishing houses at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2016. Thus giving the artists an excellent opportunity to find commissions.
