The AOI announces the shortlisted entries for its 2015 illustration awards

The Association of Illustrators (AOI) has announced the first batch of shortlisted entries for its 2015 awards. Reviewed by a jury of international industry professionals, the shortlist reflects the work created “by illustrators currently making an outstanding contribution to visual culture.” Sifting through over 2000 entries, the shortlist comprises eight categories including; Children’s Books, Editorial, Self-Initiated and New Talent, among others.

Award winners will be announced at a ceremony in October at Somerset House and the exhibition will then tour various venues in the UK. Winners will also be showcased in an accompanying publication, which will be circulated to all major commissioners of illustration. All shortlisted entries are currently showcased online but will be available to view permanently in the Awards archive. Work featured includes; Malika Favre’s film-noir inspired posters for the BAFTAs, which we posted back in February, Andrew Rae’s psychedelic graphic novel Moonhead, and Nicholas Stevenson’s whimsical Home Sweet Home series.
