The first wave of the annuals to the people in it go out today! All over the world! It's brilliant to see.

CIA 2015 Annual- IT'S HERE

Thanks to all who came to the private view on Friday. It was a great night with a great atmosphere!
The exhibition remains up at the Wilson until the 25th of October.
Today we start the job of packaging all these up to send out to all of you who are in it!


All successful particapants who also provided an email address have been emailed today about their success into the annual.
If you haven't heard from us my now, i'm afraid you weren't successful this time round. We'd like to thank you for taking to the time to enter all the same. It was very hard to whittle over 800 entries down to only 60 for the book, as the stardard was very high.

Thank you again to everybody.
Now to look forward to a great exhibition featuring 30 of the images from the annual.
From all at the Cheltenham Illustration Awards.
