The competition is open to all illustrators and students of illustration worldwide. You must be over 18 years of age to enter.

The competition is organized by Association of Illustrators, in partnership with London Transport Museum

This year the theme is London Stories

Artists are invited to visually capture a familiar or lesser-known narrative in a single image. All stories, current or historical, real or fictional which feature this amazing city are welcome – your imagination is the limit. Stories could be those seen in a film or play, heard in poetry or music, or read in literature. They may be family anecdotes, or an impression of your daily observations. Your visual story could be inspired by London’s history or contemporary city living. What stories does London have to tell?

Your artwork should be a portrait orientation image file saved as .jpg, .png or .gif.
