We believe in nurturing new illustration new talent through our educational programme and, for the second year in a row, we are very proud to offer The SAA Associate Prize for New Talent in Illustration at New Designers Part 2.
This award will be given to a graduate specialising in Illustration who is judged to have created the most fresh and inspiring work within the Visual Communication zone at the show. The prize will be a career-making six months trial representation by one of the SAA’s member agents which will include mentoring and career development. Four SAA member agents will be judging on Thursday 6th July.
Last year, the winning graduate of our Associate Prize went to Oscar Mitchell from Falmouth University and he is now represented by SAA Member Agent, Illustration Ltd. The judges felt that Oscar’s work really stood out and his visual language had a maturity of line and colour that could be applied to various sectors.
