For the second year in a row, the World Illustration Awards touring exhibition has arrived in Northern Ireland and will be on display until 18 March 2017 at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre.

The exhibition showcases over 50 of the very best artworks across the diverse field of illustration. Selected from submissions to this year’s World Illustration Awards, the breadth of work is celebrated across 8 categories, including advertising, children’s books, editorial and public art. The shortlisted and winning pieces comprise posters, book illustrations, animations and GIFs to sculptural pieces and textiles.


Roe Valley Arts & Culture Centre runs ArtySmarties and Illustrate! courses on Saturday mornings, using the exhibition as inspiration to create lots of fantastic artwork and stories themselves. Can’t wait for these budding artists to enter their work to the competition in 20 year’s time!
