In addition to the main Book Illustration Competition Award, our standalone People’s Choice Award recognises the illustrations of The Selected Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes that resonate most with you.
How to vote for The People’s Choice Award
Our expert panel of judges has selected a longlist of 24 exceptional entries, all of which will be exhibited here on our online gallery from 1 – 28 February, where you can submit your vote.
You can only vote once and voting closes at 11.59 pm on 19 February. The People’s Choice Award will be presented at Awards Night on 20 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.
