World Illustration Awards

20 January – 24 February 2018

The Chapel Gallery is hosting this prestigious exhibition of international illustration.  Illustrators from as far afield as Japan, Canada, Brazil, and the UK submit work for consideration by the Association of Illustrators.

The very best of these are included in this touring exhibition.

From self-initiated experiments to the covers that entice us to pick up a particular book, this exhibition demonstrates that innovation in illustration has the power to persuade, excite and engage us all.

The Chapel Gallery is West Lancashire Borough Council’s public arts facility. Its diverse programme includes internationally regarded artists, such as David Hockney and Peter Blake, while bringing innovative contemporary art and craft from across the UK to the region, and supporting local artists in the development of their careers.
