House of Illustration: Call for Entries!


A very exciting opportunity has arisen from the House of Illustration. The infamous organisation has announced a call for their first ever Illustrator in residence! Any and all Illustrators are free to apply:

We are looking for an illustrator to play an important part in our Housewarming festival of illustration in April and May and to record the exciting events in the run up to House of Illustration’s opening this summer.

This six-month residency is an exciting opportunity for an illustrator to get involved in all aspects of House of Illustration life, from online illustrations and blogs to displays, talks, education projects and community workshops.

We would particularly welcome applications from emerging illustrators – we want to find and promote new illustration talent!

The illustrator in residence will:

  • Have their work showcased on the House of Illustration website, alongside an individual blog on the residency
  • Have the opportunity to display work created during their residency at House of Illustration
  • Be engaged with the public through talks or workshops
  • The winning illustrator will receive a £6,000 fee plus a materials budget of up to £1,000

The House of Illustration residency will be an annual event and this inaugural residency has been made possible thanks to the generous support of The Barbara and Philip Denny Trust.

The residency will run from late April to October 2014. The closing date for submissions is Tuesday 18th March.

For information on the residency and details on how to apply please visit our illustrator in residence webpage

Best of luck!
