Society of Illustrators Artist members (Illustrator and Illustrator-S) are invited to participate in an exhibit showcasing earth’s animals both great and small!

Every animal has his or her story, his or her thoughts, daydreams, and interests.  All feel joy and love, pain and fear. All deserve that as humans, we afford them the respect of being cared for and loved.

This year Artist members (Illustrator and Illustrator-S) are asked to create an illustration any size or shape (but no larger then 18” x 24”) depicting any variety of animal, man’s best friends, wild or domesticated, in groups or solo.

A jury will determine the best among the entries to receive the Stevan Dohanos Award.
