The awards are respected by illustrators, commissioners and agents alike, offering a comprehensive insight into the ideas, trends and techniques that are at the forefront of illustration today.
An independent jury of 24 industry professionals and commissioners including Jim Stoddart, Art Director of Penguin Press, London, Connie Lam, Executive Director, Hong Kong Arts Centre and Leyla Reynolds, Art Director, gal-dem, judged over 3,600 submissions from 68 countries in eight categories to select a shortlist of 200 entries, from which the category winners have been chosen.
More About Square Eyes
Look – anyone who invents something really great has a moment where they think it's going to destroy the world.
For the first time in her life, Fin is off the network. A few months ago, she was the inventor of a programme so powerful, so unusual that she was untouchable. Until she wasn't. Meanwhile, people have started disappearing from the streets of the city and the technology she created might be implicated.
Square Eyes is a graphic novel about a future where the boundaries between memory, dreams and the digital world start to blur. It’s a kaleidoscopic mystery story which asks: in a city built on digital illusion, who really holds the power? What is weakness? And when is it most dangerous?About the authors
