Master of Children's Book Illustration

This year presented many challenges to our MA Children’s Book Illustration students, despite having to adjust to many new working practices each student rose to the challenge and produced an exciting and vibrant collection of work. You will see from the portfolios included here that each is filled with the distinct personalities and interests of the students, who explored the creation of Children’s picture books with purpose and creativity. Each year the course sees a number of students recognised by industry competitions organised by major publishing companies and this year was no different, two students were recognised by Hachette Publishing’s annual Carmelite Prize for their work, with Shelley Crawford being awarded Highly Commended. Heidi Cannon has also secured a commission with UCLan Publishing.
