Art directors and agents from the children’s book industry give valuable feedback to Illustrators.

Confirmed so far, Lily Trotter, art director, OUP and Ed Burns, Advocate Illustration Agency. Stephanie Alexander-Jinks, the Artworks Illustration Agency, and Tom Truong, Associate Publisher at Caterpillar Books and Little Tiger Kids (tbc)

The Portfolio Intensive gives student, emerging and professional illustrators the opportunity to present their portfolios to professionals in the children’s publishing industry. Illustrators will be put into groups to show their work (including book dummies) for industry-focused feedback from art directors, designers and artists’ agents on portfolio content and presentation. Illustrators will be able to sign up for a reviewer before the event, though numbers will affect how the groups are formed. Also covered will be important information on targeting the right publisher or agent for your work. This session is a great opportunity to network with professionals from the industry and other illustrators, published and yet to be published. Don’t miss out on the chance to get your work seen by experts and to take your portfolio to the next level!
