3x3 International Illustration Show No.17: Call for Entries

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 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 $9,000 in prizes in total.
  • § The Gary Powell Student Award winner will be selected by a panel of British illustrators to receive a one-year mentorship with four leading illustrators in the United Kingdom. Included are a total of four tutorials in-person or via Skype.
  • § All winners receive a free digital edition of the Annual and a 33% discount on our print edition.
  • § Best of Show and Gold medal winners receive a 3x3x3-inch cube. All other medal and merit winners receive an embossed certificate. Honorable mentions receive a PDF certificate.
  • § Art directors who receive a free digital 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.
  • § Two different shows, professional and student work are judged separately by our jury panel selected by this year’s Show Chair, Christian Gralingen.
  • § No other show has the breadth of entrants or winners. Last year our winners represented fifty-five countries.

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