World Illustration Awards 2021

A look at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on illustrators – both from a creative and practical point of view.

The World Illustration Awards showcase the great work being made by illustrators all over the world today.
In 2021, the awards will especially celebrate the resilience of illustrators and the industry, particularly during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Many of the entries to the World Illustration Awards this year focussed on the pandemic. These included illustrations explaining the science of the virus, as well as work that captured the effect of restrictions on everyday life.

Speakers include: Vic Lee (WIA2021 shortlisted illustrator, creator of Corona Diaries) and Rachel Bajema (Medical Illustrator and Editor of the Medical Illustration and Animation source book, produced by Serbin Creative, Inc. for the Association of Medical Illustrators), with more to be announced.

From scientific illustrations explaining the nature of the virus, to work exploring the social and economic impact of this global challenge, illustrators responded with speed and creativity to visually document and explain unfolding events. The Association of Illustrators has created a selection of COVID-19 related illustrations and ideas, which you can find here.
