Illustration Annual 2011 – extended deadline

We’re pleased to announce both the extension of the entry deadline for this year’s Illustration Annual, and details of two of its judges…

Thanks very much to everyone who has already entered work for our second Illustration Annual. We’ve had some exceptional submissions already.

For anyone who hasn’t had a chance to get round to sending us something, we’re happy to announce we’re extending the deadline to April 1. No, this isn’t an early April Fool’s Day joke, you really do now have more time to get something in for consideration.

If you would like to enter your work, you can do so here.

We’re also pleased to announce a couple of our judges:

Kuchar Swara, founder and creative director of new men’s magazine PORT, will be juding the editorial category.

And design journalist Liz Farrelly, who is acting as consultant curator for this year’s Pick Me Up festival at London’s Somerset House, will be judging the personal/non-published entries.

For those interested, you can read Mark’s recent interview with Kuchar and PORT editor Dan Crowe here, while Patrick’s preview of last year’s Pick Me Up festival can be seen here.

Subscribers meanwhile can look through all the of the work in  last year’s Illustration Annual in our archive.

Making the cut…

La Boca’s recent work for Black Swan may suggest a renaissance in film poster design but, with multiple executions and a tortuous approval process, this remains a complex, frustrating industry to work in.
