The V&A Illustration Awards is the UK’s most prestigious annual illustration competition recognising the very best in book, editorial and student illustration. The competition has been running since 1972 and its previous winners are a veritable Who’s Who? of British illustration including household names like Ralph Steadman, Posy Simmonds, Sara Fanelli, Quentin Blake, Laura Carlin, Matthew Richardson, Helen Musselwhite and Yasmeen Ismail.
Entry to the 2017 V&A Illustration awards is now closed.
Winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony and Private View on 16 May 2017.
Each year, the winning books are added to the holdings of the National Art Library and may be read in the Library’s Reading Rooms in the V&A.
