Juding took place earlier this week to select the top three illustrations to be the winners of the The Prize for Illustration 2015: Places and Spaces competition. 100 works were chosen for the exhibition at London Transport Museum, Covent Garden Piazza, London. It’s a great exhibition showing the diversity of approaches illustration can bring to the subject.
The winners will be announced at an award ceremony at London Transport Museum on the evening of Wednesday 13 May. The winning entry will appear on London Underground as a poster. Here are the judges perusing the exhibition.
