We're entering our ninth year judging the world's best illustration. Unlike many shows we have no boundaries, our entrants come from every part of the globe. We're still one of the best values around when it comes to entry fees and publication fees. And we continue to improve our entry process.
And unlike most show annuals that are on the bookshelves our annuals are prominently displayed on the newsstands in the US, Canada, the UK, Europe and parts of Asia where we're affordable to art directors and art buyers who may or may not be interested in illustration. We have seen a dramatic growth in the number of outlets stocking our annual and the sales to art directors.
It is our mission to demonstrate the benefits of using illustration, this annual is our showcase.
Our international panel of judges for this year's 3x3 ProShow include Jordan Awan, Art Director, The New Yorker; Andrew J. Nilsen, Art Director, SF Weekly; Gary Cochran, Art Director, London Telegraph; Shayne Pooley, Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather, Hong Kong and illustrators Brian Stauffer; Valeria Petrone, Italy; Rod Hunt, United Kingdom and Marco Wagner, Germany.
