3x3 International Illustration Show No.14 - Now Open

Enter Now

Open to all illustrators in all countries, it’s the only truly international illustration show. There are a lot of reasons to enter:

  • § Judged by leading design directors, art directors, designers, editors and publishers from across the globe. With more art directors than most shows. Alongside equally distinguished illustrators.
  • § Best of Show winners receive $1,500 cash prize, Gold medal winners a $750 cash-value* award. Over $9000 in prizes in total.
  • § Winners receive a 33% discount on the purchase of the annual, print or digital. Student winners receive a complimentary copy.
  • § Winners promoted directly to art directors who receive a free eBook edition, a link to our online gallery and a discount on our print edition.
  • § Distributed to leading bookstores and newsstands worldwide so even more eyes see our winners. Not every show can say that.
  • § More categories than any other show so your work is judged with related subject matter.
  • § Three different shows, professional, picture book and student work are judged separately by our jury panel selected by this year’s Show Chair, Rod Hunt.
  • § No other show has the breadth of entrants or winners. Last year our winners represented forty-three countries.

Since 2003 we’ve produced award-winning annuals that art directors like to see. And use.
