This Year's Prize

Kelpies Design & Illustration Prize 2017 – Shortlist Announced

Kelpies Design & Illustration Prize 2017

We are excited to announce the shortlist for the Kelpies Design & Illustration Prize 2017! Congratulations to the ten designers and illustrators who made the list this year. We'll be announcing the winner on Thursday 30 March, but we'd also like to know what you think! Click on the button below to vote for your favourite design. The winner of the People's Choice will receive a £75 cash prize.

Entrants to the Kelpies Design & Illustration Prize 2017 had the opportunity to create a cover design for new children's novel Ruby McCracken: Tragic Without Magic by Kelpies Prize 2016 winner Elizabeth Ezra. The book will be published in autumn 2017. This sassy story about a young witch plunged into the Ordinary World has great scope for imaginative interpretation, be it through design, illustration or pure typography. And this is definitely demonstrated by our talented shortlisters.



If you think you've got what it takes to create an eye-catching book cover that 8 to 12 year olds can't help but pick up, watch this space for details of the Kelpies Design & Illustration Prize 2018.
