How to Enter the Kelpies Prize for Illustration

The Kelpies Prize for Illustration 2020 has been postponed.

Floris Books has taken the sad decision to cancel the Kelpies Prizes for Writing and Illustration this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the uncertain months that lie ahead. The far-reaching impact of the pandemic means that we will not be able to judge the prizes effectively, hold the ceremony or commit to honouring the prize-packages promised to each winner.

We have emailed all our entrants and entries will be rolled over until next year unless we are asked otherwise. We are looking forward to launching The Kelpies Prizes 2021 later in the year.

The Brief

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

  • What do you love about Scotland? You may find inspiration in Scotland’s wildlife, plant life or landscapes, its cultural heritage and history, or your own experience of living here.
  • The judges are looking for individual and diverse reflections of Scotland created with a young audience in mind.

The closing date for entries was 5pm, 29 February 2020.
