The Book Illustration Competition is a unique partnership between House of Illustration and The Folio Society that seeks to identify and promote new talent in illustration. The annual international competition is open to illustrators over the age of 18, both student and professional, who have not been previously published by The Folio Society.

Each year entrants are asked to submit three illustrations and a binding design for a book chosen by The Folio Society. The winner receives a highly sought-after commission, worth £5,000, to complete a total of nine illustrations and a binding design for the book, which is then published by The Folio Society. Five runners each receive £500 cash.

This year entrants should submit three illustrations and a binding design for The Selected Adventures and Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle.
The new edition, featuring illustrations by the winner, will be published by The Folio Society as part of its Christmas 2018 campaign

The deadline is Wednesday 17 January 2018.
