World Illustration Awards 2023 Call for Entries



Friday, 2 December 2022 to Tuesday, 14 February 2023
Tuesday, 12 September 2023 - 6:45pm

Presented by the Association of Illustrators (AOI), in partnership with the USA-based Directory of Illustration, the World Illustration Awards 2023 are now open for submissions offering illustrators the opportunity to have their illustration work seen and celebrated!

Enter via the online form until 14 February 2023.

Professional and New Talent Illustrators, (working individually or as collectives), commissioners, agents and tutors are invited to submit work created, commissioned or published since January 2022, into the Awards.

This globally-recognised competition has ten industry-relevant categories and is judged by distinguished professionals from the global illustration industry.

Selected entries are shared on the popular @worldillustrationawards Instagram as they come in.

This is followed by the announcement in May of 500 longlisted projects, and then the release of the 200 shortlisted projects which will feature in an Online Showcase launching in July. This is widely marketed to the industry (commissioners and peers) across the world and often leads to new clients and illustration work.

The year ends with the excitement of the winner announcements, networking events and release of the online catalogue in September. The two Overall Winners will be presented cash prizes to the value of £3K and £1K respectively. In addition to the 20 Category Winners, four Cross-Category Awards will be presented this year, including the brand new Huion Award for best Digital, recognising work that truly pushes the boundaries of the artform.

To find out all about the awards, the 10 categories, how to enter, sponsors, prizes and cash awards, judges and much more visit:

Entries can be submitted until the end of the day 14 February 2023 via the online application form.
