Calling all illustrators! The Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC) has just announced an online illustration contest called afccSKETCH. Illustrators around the world are invited to draw a piece of artwork based on the given theme and then email it to afcc(at)bookcouncil(dot)sg. Submitted entries will be posted on the AFCC Facebook page and the panel of judges will then decide on three winners whose works will be mounted and displayed at the Festival’s Book Illustrators Gallery. The three winners will also share in attractive prize package!
This year’s theme is One Big Story. Illustrate your interpretation of what One Big Story means in the context of children’s literary content! Works will be judged for skill, aesthetic quality, and how well the artist adheres to the theme.
Guidelines to keep in mind:
- Illustrations must be drawn specifically for afccSKETCH. No pre-existing illustrations, please!
- As winning entries will be printed for display, please send high-res PDF/TIF copies of your illustrations. When printed, they should be no more than A4 size. Hand-drawn or digital art is fine, so long as you can email it.
- You may submit up to two entries for consideration
- Keep it tasteful! And remember that this is a kid-friendly festival. Whether or not your work will be uploaded is up to Book Council staff and they will (sadly) have to delete anything with inappropriate content.
- Works will be accepted from around the world.
- Deadline: 13 May 2013, 3pm (GMT+8).
- Questions? Click here or email the organizers at afcc(at)bookcouncil(dot)sg
