The Northern Illustration Prize is a new international Illustration competition from The Northern School of Art (the School), in collaboration with AOI, and supported by The Gillian Dickinson Trust. The competition forms part of the biennial Northern Illustration Festival (the Festival) which is supported by Arts Council England.
The Prize is themed around ‘Monkey’ and we are looking for submissions that interpret this theme in your own way, as character development, narrative, editorial, etc. However you may wish to respond in the context of the legend of the Hartlepool Monkey.
You can enter one of two categories:
- Established Illustrator – a professional illustrator entering their own work. The winning entry will receive £2,000
- Emerging Illustrator – an early career illustrator submitting their own work. The winning entry will receive a studio space for one year in Hartlepool, close to The Northern School of Art Campus (or a discretionary award of £1,000 if the winner is unable to take up the studio)
Deadline is 11 April 2019
