Thank you to all who took the time to enter the 2015 Cheltenham Illustration Awards.
If you entered, you should receive confirmation of your entry have been downloaded no later than the 18th of June.

If you are successful at getting into the annual you will be notified by email around September 2015.

If you don't receive this email we are sorry to say you won't have been successful this year. But we do thank you for entering.

This year we've had around 700 entries from all round the world and only around 50 can make it into the annual.
Each successful entry gets a free copy of the annual and an invite to the Opening night of the exhibition in early October.

(Sadly not all successful entries in the annual can also be in the exhibition due to space, you can check before to see if yours is if you so wish.)

Thank you all once again. We are excited to print the 2015 Cheltenham Illustration Annual!

The 2014 Awards Exhibition at The LONDON BOOK FAIR

Last week our Cheltenham Illustration Awards exhibition from 2014 went to exhibit in front of thousands at the London Book Fair.


So far we've already had a number of great entries coming into the Chelt Illustration Awards. 
We'd like to stress however that you please make sure you read before you send your file. 
This is to ensure we get everything we need from you and so the selection process can run smoothly.

We do not except submissions as email attachments or with the text (your email and name etc...) in the 'We transfer' text box. 

Please instead make sure to include a Notepad/Textedit file along with your image submission when you send your submission using 'WeTransfer'.
Thank you!


In a few weeks time the 2015 London Book Fair happens and we are pleased to say the 2014 'BEING HUMAN' Cheltenham Illustration Awards will be there also with 18 of the pieces from our exhibition.
