i have just found a new competition to enter 🙂 It is important to enter as many as possible in this year because it not only counts towards our work based learning unit but also because it gives our work publicity, i often do fan art and send it to popular figures and famous people but this has more of a professional standing. Below is the front page from the website the competition is hosted upon, here i can find all the details on the requirements and how to enter, i like the look of this competition because i enjoy illustration and i very much enjoy reading. So firstly i will read the book in question, which is “The Heart of Darkness” by Joseph Conrad 🙂
The Folio Society and House of Illustration are delighted to announce the launch of The Book Illustration Competition 2014.
Now in its fourth year, this exciting collaboration between House of Illustration and The Folio Society champions the art of book illustration and in 2013 received over 500 entries from across the globe. The annual international competition is open to illustrators over the age of 18, both student and professional, with the winner receiving a prestigious Folio Society commission. Previous books featured in the competition include Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories by Angela Carter and The Outsider by Albert Camus.
The book to be illustrated this year is Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad.
Last year’s competition to illustrate Brave New World by Aldous Huxley was won by Finn Dean. Copies of the book are available to purchase from the Folio Society.
