World Illustration Awards 2020 Shortlist announced!

The AOI, in partnership with the Directory of Illustration, is delighted to announce the 200 projects that have been shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards 2020!

In December 2019, we opened our call to illustrators to Be Ambitious, Be Seen, Be Celebrated. An incredible 4,300+ entries were submitted by illustrators from 79 countries into this year’s awards. This was followed by a competitive judging process to find the 500 longlisted projects, from which the final shortlist of 200 projects has now been selected.

These 200 are all contenders for the coveted Highly Commended or Category Winner Awards, to be announced later this year, and will feature in the WIA2020 catalogue and  showcase.

Check out the shortlisted projects now and keep an eye out for our additional features to celebrate these varied and wonderful projects.
