The winner of the Prize for Illustration 2015, chosen from over one thousand entries worldwide, has been announced and a range of products have been created featuring two entrants designs.
The competition, which is run by Association of Illustrators (AOI) and London Transport Museum, was open to illustrators throughout the world and this year’s theme was London Places and Spaces. Artists were invited to capture an iconic or lesser known place or concept in a single illustration.
Brighton based illustrator Eleanor Taylor scooped the coveted Gold prize for her illustration of the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. The Silver prize went to Carly Allen-Fletcher for Compound City, and the Bronze prize to Eliza Southwood for Parkour at the South Bank, making it an all women top line up in 2015.
The judging panel, made up of art and design experts shortlisted 100 illustrations from over 1,000 entries. All of the entries including the three winners will be on display at London Transport Museum in Covent Garden Piazza from 15 May to 6 September 2015. Together the illustrations take visitors on a visual journey across London with images which range from the contemplative to the crowded and loud, imaginary or real and from the past to the present.
London Transport Museum has taken two entries from the shortlisted 100 to create a small range of eye catching products to compliment the exhibition. Alex Jeffries Tate Modern in Autumn features a graphic and bright image of the art institution on the south bank of the city framed with crisp blue skies and clear waters. In contrast David Cutts shows the city at night, dark and glittering in the rain with his comic inspired Piccadilly Shines for You. Both prints are available on travel card holders, mugs, totes and as poster prints.
"A hub where tourists and workers entwine. The lights of Piccadilly Circus shine on everyone, bringing light in the rain."
