2018 New England Illustration Prize

Filed : Arts and funding opportunities, Local and industry news .

Exciting News! This year the New England Illustration Prize, which is in its third year, is going national. This years’ theme is ‘A Fun Day Out’. ENTER NOW!

We invite illustrators resident in any part of Australia, and at any stage of their careers, to create a colour illustration, suitable for a children’s picture book, on the theme of  ‘A fun day out’. You can interpret this in any way that you wish — it can be humorous, fantastical, realistic, or any genre that you wish and the illustration can be centered around people, animals, supernatural creatures, robots, monsters, machines, whatever you like!


Entries can be created in any medium but must be able to be sent digitally, by email, as a file attachment no bigger than 2.5 MB.  One entry only per illustrator — and please keep to the guidelines!

Results Announced: Week beginning July 9

Thanks to the generosity of fantastic sponsors, we have wonderful prizes on offer, from a fabulous first prize of an exciting picture-book-making weekend at the nationally-renowned Pinerolo Children’s Book Cottage in the Blue Mountains, to great cash and book prizes for second and third places!
