The World Illustration Awards are presented annually by the Association of Illustrators in partnership with the USA-based Directory of Illustration to support, promote and celebrate contemporary illustration being made today across the globe.

We work with international venue partners to host the World Illustration Awards Touring Exhibition, a fascinating, inspiring survey of the breadth and diversity of current illustration practice.

This inspiring, thought-provoking exhibition showcases all Award-Winning and Highly Commended projects across ten industry-relevant categories and includes material that tells the story of the ideas, processes and artists behind the work.
