World Illustration Awards 2019: New Cross-Category SAA Award announced!

The Society of Artists Agents (SAA) have teamed up with the World Illustration Awards 2019 to offer a fantastic new, cross-category award for the first time.

This new Award will offer an unrepresented New Talent illustrator shortlisted in any category a six-month trial representation with one of the leading Society of Artists Agents Illustration agents, which will include mentoring and career development. During that time, the winner will, in addition to the agent’s own marketing program, benefit from having their work showcased on the SAA’s News Blog as a featured article and across their social media platforms. The winner will also be presented with a WIA certificate and profile feature on the AOI website.

“The SAA are delighted to be supporting the prestigious World Illustration Awards 2019. We value our longstanding relationship with the AOI and are very proud to offer a new prize, ‘The SAA Agents Award for New Talent’.  We can’t wait to discover the most fresh and inspiring work from the New Talent Shortlist and introduce our winner to the possibilities that representation can offer.” – Caroline Thomson, Arena Illustration

So, if you’re a current student or recent graduate, or have just started out in your first year as an illustrator, why not enter your best projects from the last year, and you could win this fantastic, career-boosting prize!

Your last chance to Enter the Awards is 17 February, so don’t miss out!
