What could be in it for you?
If you win Picture This! 2023 UK, you put the spotlight on your work and gain attention from publishers around the world. Many winning illustrators have gone on to illustrate picture books and be published.
The final selection will be published in an international catalogue and presented to several leading picture book publishing houses at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair 2024. This gives the artists an excellent opportunity to find commissions.
You will also win a day at Walker Books UK on September 2023, which will include a tour of our Vauxhall office, a mentoring session with internationally acclaimed illustrator Petr Horáček and a leading art director, and lunch.
The works of all winning artists will be part of the Picture This!-exhibition in KUNZT.
