iJungle Illustration Awards is a global-scale contest in illustration. It is held in Europe, while illustrators, agencies, students and tutors willing to take part in it come from all over the world. This year, the contest had seven categories: books, editorials, comics, advertisement, new talents (for students), and videos games.
The jury featured famous illustrators such as Feifei Ruan http://feifeiruan.com, Simon Prades http://www.simonprades.com, Steve Simpson http://www.stevesimpson.com. Over 1,100 works from 54 countries competed for prizes, and works by Olga Solomatina (BA (Hons) Illustration) became MERIT AWARD WINNER in NEW TALENT category.
“I learnt about the contest from a professional resource. I think that taking part in such competitions is a rather useful thing, because it provides an outside perspective on your works and an opportunity to realize how close you are to what is currently on demand, and also to make yourself seen, to stick out. As any creative person, sometimes I suffer from terrible lack of self-confidence, and such victories give me strength and bravery and allow to move forward”, said Olga.
BHSAD congratulates the winner on this well-deserved victory!
