V&A Illustration awards 2016 exhibition

The V&A Illustration Awards celebrate the best illustration published over the last year. Original artwork from the best illustrated book, book cover, editorial illustration and student illustrator of the year are recognised.

For V&A Illustration Awards2016, the overall award has been renamed in honour of the late Moira Gemmill, who was the V&A’s Director of Design for 13 years. In addition to the award, the winner also receives £5,000.

The prize went to David McConochie for his cover for The Folio Book of Ghost Stories. McConochie says he was inspired by “the strangely beautiful but inherent eeriness” of 19th century daguerreotypes in the work. The judging panel of author Dame Jacqueline Wilson, Patrick Burgoyne, editor of Creative Review and Annabel Judd, former head of design at the V&A were struck by the boldness of the composition and the way in which it sets the tone for the unnerving stories within the book.

McConochie studied Graphic Design at the University of Teesside and has since become known for his work in photomontage, collage and assemblage and his mixed-media approach. McConochie also won the Book Cover Illustration Award for the same piece, worth an additional £3,000.

Take a look and get inspired by this amazing creative works!
