The Macmillan Prize for Illustration 2017
This prestigious prize has been running for over 30 years, and past winners have included many of today’s most successful and well-loved illustrators. The prize is a real highlight in the publishing calendar, and with the number of submissions continuing to grow year on year. The submission dates are 18th-20th April 2017 inclusive.
All entrants must submit:
1. Pencil roughs or sketches for a children's picture book – cover to cover – including text or a clear indication of the story line.
2. Finished artwork for at least four double-page spreads, or at least three spreads and a front cover.
Entrants should bear in mind what is appropriate for the child reader.
Macmillan accept entries both in physical portfolios, and digitally via the website. (Please note that if shortlisted, hard copies of digital entries must be supplied suitable for exhibition.)
