    The Association of Illustrators (AOI) in partnership with London Transport Museum, is delighted to announce that submissions are now welcome for the Prize for Illustration 2015. This year the theme is "London Places and Spaces".

    London has inspired countless great works of art, each reflecting aspects of the City’s unique character and qualities. The Prize for Illustration 2015 looks to continue this tradition by taking the theme of London Places and Spaces and invites submissions from illustrators throughout the world.

    The aim is to attract artwork for display that is colourful, inspiring and celebrates a vibrant, multi-layered London. Entrants are invited to visually capture an iconic or lesser known place in a single image.

    All artworks should be in portrait format. London Transport Museum prefers that artworks conform to actual or pro rata standard poster sized: Double Royal – 635 x 1016mm (25 x 40 inches) or Double Crown – 505 x 760mm (20 x 30 inches). However, for this exhibition these sizes are not prescriptive.

    There is no entry fee.
