    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 2017.

    This year the theme is "Sounds of the City - an illustrated interpretation of urban sound.".

    We are surrounded 24/7 by sound in our cities. It shapes our experiences and our moods. Whether it’s the sound of people going about their daily lives – living, working, visiting or enjoying cultural, sporting or musical activities – or the sounds of nature within the city, the exhibition will show the artist’s relationship with sound, heard within the environment of a city context.

    The aim is to attract artwork for display that is colourful, inspiring and celebrates the sounds heard in the hubbub and quiet spaces of the UK’s vibrant, diverse, multi-layered cities. Entrants are invited to visually capture sound heard in our UK cities in a single illustration.

    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.


    Open to illustrators and students of illustration throughout the world, regardless whether they are members of the Association of Illustrators or not.


    • First prize: 2000 GBP (approx. 2,930 USD) and display of image on a LTM poster
    • Second prize: 1000 GBP (approx. 1,460 USD)
    • Third prize: 750 GBP (approx. 1,090 USD)

    There is also the possibility that your shortlisted image will be featured on merchandise sold in London Transport Museum's shop.

    Moreover, the top 100 entries selected by a panel of judges will be displayed in an exhibition at London Transport Museum that will open from May and run until September 2017. The winners will be announced at a private award ceremony that will take place in early May 2017.
