Which entry to the 2017 Book Illustration Competition has captured your imagination?
For the very first time you can vote for your favourite illustrations. In addition to the main Book Illustration Competition Award, a standalone Visitors’ Choice Award will recognise the illustrations of Mansfield Park that resonate most with you.
How to vote for the Visitors’ Choice
Our expert panel of judges has selected a longlist of 23 exceptional entries, which will be exhibited at House of Illustration (King’s Cross, London) from 11 February – 12 March. You can either:
- Visit House of Illustration and vote in the boxes provided
- View the longlist below then submit your vote online
You can only vote once and voting closes at midnight on 22 February. The Visitors’ Choice Award will be presented at Awards Night on 23 February to the longlisted entry with the most votes from the public. The winner will receive books of their choice worth £100 from The Folio Society, plus a year’s membership to House of Illustration.
Whoever gets your vote, let us know on Twitter and Instagram by tagging @IllustrationHQ and @foliosociety using #BIC2017longlist and #MyBIC2017.

If we do not receive a response from the winner within 28 days the prize will be awarded to another voter.
