I just found this info online, and figured that I would give a friendly reminder to anyone who wasn't up to date with the Society of Illustrators latest competition! The Deadline is November 7th and I pulled the main requirements for quick reference below. They have everything set up online this year and so far it seems to be efficient and organized! Best of luck to everyone that is entering!
Any illustration created or initially published between October 1, 2007 and November 1, 2008 that has not been accepted in the Annual previously, is eligible. International entries are welcome.
All commissioned work whether published or not, should be entered in one of the first six categories: Sequential, or Series / Animation, Editorial, Book, Advertising, Institutional, and Uncommissioned.
