The AOI's prestigious World Illustration Awards are once again open for submissions.
In the past this award has been won by some big names including Lesley Barnes, Chris Haughton and Andy Smith, along side some extraordinary emerging artists too.

These are three of my personal favorite winners from the 2016 awards, and I adore the promotional card illustration for the 2017 awards, which is by Daria Pertilli
