Prestigious exhibition will be on display at the Ruskin Gallery until 21 December
A collection of the world’s finest new illustration is sure to warm hearts in Cambridge this winter, with the prestigious World Illustration Awards Exhibition 2017 going on show in the city from Thursday, 23 November.
The exhibition, which was originally on display at Somerset House in London over the summer, has a new home at the Ruskin Gallery on Anglia Ruskin University’s East Road campus until Thursday, 21 December.
The World Illustration Awards is the annual competition of the Association of Illustrators (AOI), and this year attracted over 2,300 entries from artists and illustrators from 64 countries.
The exhibition showcases 50 shortlisted projects across eight categories, including advertising, design, books and editorial. Original exhibited works on display will include murals, posters, packaging and children’s books by artists from the UK, USA, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea, Hong Kong and Israel.
The exhibition includes work from Bethan Woollvin, who graduated in 2015 from Anglia Ruskin’s Cambridge campus with a First Class BA (Hons) Illustration degree and was the winner of this year’s New Talent (Children’s Books) category.
