- We are introducing The Gary Powell Student Award this year. One of our student show winners will be selected by a panel of British illustrators to receive this special award. The winner will receive a one-year mentorship with four leading illustrators in the United Kingdom. Included are a total of four tutorials in-person or via Skype.

- § Winners promoted directly to art directors who receive a free eBook edition, a link to our online gallery and a discount on our print edition.

- § More categories than any other show so your work is judged with related subject matter.
- § Two different shows, professional and student work are judged separately by our jury panel selected by this year’s Show Chair, Melinda Beck.
- § No other show has the breadth of entrants or winners. Last year our winners represented forty-five countries.
Since 2003 we’ve produced award-winning annuals that art directors like to see. And use.
