How to Enter the Kelpies Illustration Prize

The Kelpies Illustration Prize is now closed for 2019. Watch this space for the shortlist announcement in June!

The Brief

This year’s entrants were asked to submit five illustrations for a children’s book about fables.

  • You may find inspiration from existing fables from world culture, or new fables that you have created.
  • The judges would be particularly impressed by entrants who demonstrate dynamic composition, use of narrative, and character consistency in their entries, as well as those who include human and animal characters in their entries.
  • Submitted artwork can be previously existing if thematically appropriate, or newly created in response to the brief. Previously published works cannot be accepted.
