    3x3 magazine is entering its fourteenth year judging the world's best contemporary illustration. Their mission is to spotlight the best contemporary international artists they can find and encourage a new focus on the use of illustration by the global editorial, advertising and design communities.

    There are three main categories:

    • Professional Show
    • Picture Book Show
    • Student Show

    The goal is to bring together artists from all countries to share their creative output in an impartial judging scenario. All judging is done digitally by a set of unbiased judges; if a particular judge has either commissioned the work or has been the illustrator they are not allowed to vote on their entry.

    A Series entry must have a central consistent theme, i.e. editorial article, sequential comic, book. All series will be judged as a whole. There is no limit to how many pieces you may enter, and you can enter a piece in multiple categories.

    Professional Show and Picture Book Show fees are 35 USD for a Single Entry and 60 USD for a Series (three to five images). Student Show fees are 15 USD for a Single Entry and 35 USD for a Series.

    After March 24th there will be a 10 USD late fee to each entry.


    Open to all illustrators, art directors, graphic designers, educators, students, recent graduates, editors, publishers in all countries for commissioned and non-commissioned work produced and/or published during the calendar year 2016.
