In addition to the main Book Illustration Competition Award, our standalone People’s Choice Award recognises the illustrations of Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones that resonate most with you.

Our expert panel of judges has selected a longlist of 25 exceptional entries, all of which will be exhibited on our online gallery from 1 – 28 February, where you can submit your vote.

The People’s Choice Award will be presented to the longlisted entry with the most votes from the public at the Awards Night on 26 February.

The artist who wins The People’s Choice Award will receive books of their choosing worth £100 from The Folio Society, plus a year’s membership to House of Illustration. A randomly selected member of the public who has cast a vote will also win books of their choice worth £50 from The Folio Society, plus two tickets to House of Illustration.

On the same night we will also announce the overall competition winner and runners-up, as selected by our judges.
