The Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators is proud to present Illustrators 63, featuring the most outstanding works by leading contemporary illustrators worldwide and voted on by a prestigious jury, which include renowned illustrators, art directors, and designers.
For 63 years, the Annual has provided a platform to our global community to express, through illustration, the events and movements of our times. The significance of the events of this year, documented through your visual narratives, will become an important archive. This show is a true reflection of our times and shows that our community is deeply thoughtful and engaged in the state of our world.
Illustrators 63 will be a unique and memorable enterprise for our community. This year, we will be sharing a very different experience for the exhibit and ceremony. In order to protect public health and safety, much of the Annual will be virtual. The online gallery will allow viewers to access the show from the comfort of their homes, and will grant 24 hour access to view the show upon purchase of the virtual ticket. Virtual tickets will be available once the online gallery opens on January 13. Online viewing dates will be extended past the onsite gallery dates.
The Society will be hosting a virtual awards ceremony. Details and registration can be found here.
In addition to the online ceremony and gallery, the Society will continue to host a controlled-attendance exhibit at our Museum in NYC. Tickets must be purchased in advance to visit the Society’s headquarters.
The Annual is broken up into two shows. Part One features work in the Uncommissioned, Advertising, Institutional and Surface/Product Design categories. Gold and silver medals were awarded by the jury to the top pieces in each category.
