Winners announced as Cambridge School of Art Illustrators make world Illustration longslist

In December 2019, the Association of Illustrators (AOI) opened a 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. The longlist represents some of the best illustration from across the world, featuring an incredible array of techniques, concepts, processes and formats.

Ren Renwick, CEO of the Association of Illustrators, said:

“We are presenting the longlist for the 2020 World Illustration Awards at an extraordinary time. Now more than ever the value of illustration is startlingly obvious.  It communicates, enchants, explains. Illustration is the perfect commission for our socially distanced times. This longlist will offer seasoned commissioners, as well as those trying illustration for the first time, a treasure trove of delights to pick from.”

Our congratulations go to:
