Flip over the issue et voila – our very first Illustration Annual – which follows the same format as our successful Photography Annual.

Entries were invited in the following categories: Personal (self initiated or experimental work, which has either not been commissioned or published before); Design (illustrations that have been commissioned by design studios); Editorial (work commissioned by newspapers, magazines etc); and Advertising. As with the Photography Annual, we appointed one judge per category – we find that a single, knowledgeable judge works better than a committee in this context.

Our judges were Angus Hyland, a partner at Pentagram; Stephen Petch, art director of The Independent on Sunday’s Review; and Paul Cohen of McCann-Erickson and co-founder of Draft magazine. All were asked to select their favourite work as well as their choices for our Best in Book section…

Congratulations to everyone whose work is featured and thank you to all who entered.
