The Awards presentation and launch of the Images 36 annual took place on 2 October in the historic Seaman’s Hall in Somerset House. The exhibition, in the neighbouring Terrace Rooms gallery, was highly praised by the invited attendees.
The Images 36 winners were selected by a specially chosen jury including agents, publishers and artists. Internationally acclaimed artists such as Noma Bar and David Foldvari were amongst this yearâ€™s judges alongside Art Directors from Guardian G2, Granta Publications, Hodder & Stoughton and Random House, as well as Creative Directors from leading design and digital agencies.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Prizes were presented by Sheri Gee of Folio Society books and John O’Reilly, Varoom magazine editor.
Guests received a copy of the brand new Images 36 annual, along with specially selected gifts from the event sponsors in an AOI tote bag.
