[ILLUSTRATORS 55] From thousands of entries submitted worldwide, a jury of 
professional peers including illustrators and art directors chose works from seven categories—sequential/series, institutional, uncommissioned, moving image, editorial, book, and advertising:

Sequential/Series – Multi-image projects for which a sequence of images is necessary
to fully convey an idea or story.

Institutional – Annual reports, calendars, greeting cards, newsletters and in-house publications.

Uncommissioned – Unpublished work.

Moving Image – Animation for commercial purposes such at TV or online advertisements, short or feature length movies, ebooks, apps or music videos.

Editorial – Newspapers, magazines and online magazines.

Book – Commissioned for use inside and on the cover of books.

Advertising – Newspapers, magazines, TV, video and CD covers, brochures, packaging and posters.

[LETTERPRESS PROJECTS] The Letterpress and Book Arts Center values the historical and aesthetic development of visual arts related to printmaking and provides a studio for the creation and production of accomplished works of art, artist books and portfolios by visiting artists, students and our community. The Center was established at the Ringling College of Art and Design in May 2011 with the acquisition of Hal and Judi Sterne’s studio and houses four printing presses, a Chandler and Price platen press, two Vandercook SP15 and a Vandercook Universal III. It is generously equipped with over 400 cases of type and 4000 metal engravings. The Ringling College Letterpress and Book Arts Center is one of 150 College studios in the nation.

[KE FRANCIS] Ke Francis is an artist and storyteller originally from Tupelo, Mississippi as well as longtime head of the Fine Arts Dept. at The University of Central Florida in Orlando. He worked closely with poets C.D. Wright and Forrest Gander in developing broadsides of image and poem for the first publication of the Letterpress and Book Arts Center titled Ringling Suite. Wright is a MacArthur Fellow and published poet, and Gander is a published poet and teaches Creative Writing at Brown University. For more information on Ke Francis: www.hoopsnakepress.com/‎

[JULIE CHEN] Premiere book designer and maker Julie Chen is world-reknowned for her inventive, elegant and intriguing book designs, challenging the preconceived ideas of what a book is while at the same time providing a deeply meaningful experience through the presentation of her own text and imagery. She produced a full color sixteen-page book titled Praxis with the Letterpress and Book Arts Center. For more information on Julie Chen: www.flyingfishpress.com/

[GRACIELA ITURBE] Considered one of the most important and influential  Latin American photographers of the last four decades, Iturbe has developed a photographic style based on her strong interest in culture, ritual and everyday life in her native Mexico as well as other countries. In 2007 Frida Kahlo’s closets were opened for the first time since her death—Graciela was one of several artists invited to photograph Kahlo’s personal items. Ms. Iturbe has created a folio with one of the images with the Letterpress and Book Arts Center. For more information on Graciela Iturbide: www.gracielaiturbide.org/
