Come see for yourself the winning entries, which will be exhibited at the Book Illustrators Gallery from 14 May – 3 June at the B1 Exhibition Area, National Library Building!

Our online illustration contest is BACK! This year’s theme revolves around: birds, friendship and Japan. We accept works from around the world!
