The Swatch Young Il­lus­tra­tors Award is a unique com­pe­ti­tion award­ing cre­ativ­i­ty and in­no­va­tion in per­son­al con­tem­po­rary il­lus­tra­tion and graph­ics. The award en­cour­ages and sup­ports de­sign­ers in their artis­tic prac­tice and of­fers an in­ter­na­tion­al and world­wide rec­og­nized plat­form to them. Il­lus­tra­tive art works, art pro­jects with graph­ic in­flu­ences, an­i­ma­tions and book art ob­jects qual­i­fy for sub­mis­sion.

The nominees of the Swatch Young Illustrators Award will be invited to Berlin and get the opportunity to exhibit their work at Illustrative 2009 in Berlin. The winners await prizes worth 6.000 Euros as well as publications and illustration agency contracts and will also be featured in future international shows. One winner will be invited to design a Swatch Watch – a great opportunity to join the ranks of artists such as Kiki Picasso, Pedro Almodóvar, Robert Altman and Keith Haring.

The nom­i­nees will be award­ed by an in­ter­na­tion­al jury con­sist­ing of lead­ing art di­rec­tors, ex­perts and ed­i­tors of graph­ic and de­sign mag­a­zines.

The call for the Swatch Young Il­lus­tra­tors Award opens in June and con­tin­ues till the end of Septem­ber 2009. An in­ter­na­tion­al jury de­cides in Oc­to­ber about each of the cat­e­go­ry’s win­ners.

With­in the Il­lus­tra­tive fes­ti­val in au­tumn 2009, the Gold­en Awards and fur­ther prizes will be award­ed in a fes­tive cer­e­mo­ny. The short-​list­ed artists will be an­nounced on the Il­lus­tra­tive web­site at www.il­lus­tra­tive.de in the be­gin­ning of Oc­to­ber. A se­lec­tion of works award­ed by the Swatch Young Il­lus­tra­tors Award will be pre­sent­ed at fu­ture Il­lus­tra­tive fes­ti­vals.

Transaction fees
International money transfers may incur extra fees (e.g. for currency conversion), which may differ from country to country and bank to bank. Transaction fees must be paid in addition to the submission fee. Please inquire about these fees at your bank or at paypal.com.

Paypal is an easy and secure way to transfer money internationally online. Go to Paypal.com and register with your own personal account.

More information at: www.paypal.com.

Application Form
The application form helps us to register your data correctly. This includes:
- Family name and first name
- Contact information
- Place and date of birth

Your data will be dealt with confidentially.

Personal ID
After registration, you will be given a personal ID number, which allows us to allocate the submitted work to the registered individual. Therefore it is important that you state this number when transferring the fee and when sending your PDF.

Your Project
Eligible for submission are:
- Images (single images or series of up to 20 works), installation projects
- Animation films
- Book Art objects
The work is to be submitted digitally. Pictures or documentation of films, books or installations are to be integrated into a PDF. The individual work is to be marked with a subtitle or with a separate list of titles (size, year, if applicable edition, technique). The PDF may contain additional information about the project and a CV.
Only personal work will be accepted, not commercial work.

Submit your work
After registration, please send a PDF directly via email to johanssen@illustrative.de.

Postal service submissions
We will not accept work submitted by postal services.

Additional supporting material may be sent by post if essential for preview purposes (i.e. DVD, CD or publications). If so, please include a print-out of your online application confirmation. Mailing costs will be borne by the entrant. Supporting material will be returned on request only and is subject to the following conditions:

- submissions from Germany must have a stamped and self-addressed envelope enclosed.
- submissions from abroad must include a EUR 10 bill (cash only).

Please use the online application for all entries. In order to do so, the applicant must first register as a site user. More than one project may be submitted by the same artist, using a separate application for each work. This means that you have to register again to generate another personal ID and you will have to pay a submission fee for each project that you'd like to submit.

There will be no insurance cover for the material received. Should art works be damaged through the fault of Illustrative, only the material value will be reimbursed.

Festival Participation
The conditions of entry are valid for Illustrative Berlin in 2009. Nominated entrants will be invited to participate in the festival. It is the intention of Illustrative to show all nominated art works – this is however subject to the possibilities and limitations of the respective festival to do so.

Works submitted must be in German or English, or have subtitles in either of these languages. Works in other languages must be accompanied by a text list in German or English.
