V+A Illustration Awards

Posted in Uncategorized by The Department of Illustration on June 9, 2011

Olivier Kugler is the overall winner of this year’s V&A Illustration Awards for his depiction of a truck driver’s journey across Iran, featured in French quarterly reportage magazine XXI

Rendered in Kugler’s familiar sketchbook style, the 30-page illustrated journal tells the story of the illustrator’s trip with Massih, a truck driver Kugler met in Tehran and accompanied for a four-day journey carrying bottled water down to a small island in the Persian Gulf.

Best Illustrated Book was won by Laura Carlin for her illustration for The Iron
Man (Faber and Faber / Walker Books).

All category winners were awarded £2,000, with the overall winner receiving an additional £2,000. A free display of original artwork and published work by the winning and shortlisted artists will be shown from 7 June until 17 December 2011 in the V&A’s 20th-Century Galleries.

The V&A Illustration Awards is supported by the Enid Linder Foundation
