The theme for 2018’s Exhibition and Annual : Tangled Tales.
The focus of the Awards has always been one of narrative. Visual storytelling, whether sequential or single image, gives scope to the imagination and opens up possibilities beyond the present moment; what happened  before? What happens next?

'Tangled Tales.

Lives connected by strands of overlapping narrative.

Bridging borders and boundaries, a world united by a tangle of tales.'

Open to all students, emerging and established illustrators.

An academic and peer selection panel will assess the entries for inclusion in the exhibition and Annual.

The selected work will be showcased at the Museum in the Park, Stroud, UK, other venues, and published in the 2018 Cheltenham Illustration Awards Annual, which will be distributed to educators and publishers, internationally.

The Awards will also be inviting work from established artists and illustrators whose work we admire and that contributes to the theme.

The deadline for submitted entries is the 1st June 2018.
