Apart from appreciation, the previous volume helped connect many creative professionals, design studios & institutions with featured illustrators. More than 1,200+ books were published and delivered.


For each entry, you can submit up to 03 of your best illustrations produced for either advertising or editorial assignments – as well as work created for self-promotional purposes.
