This year the theme is Sounds of the City - an illustrated interpretation of urban sound. Inspiration might be from natural or man-made sounds. All artworks should be in portrait format.
The competition is open to all illustrators and students of illustration worldwide.
There is no submission fee.
The deadline for entry to The Prize for Illustration 2017 competition is 26 September 2016.
