why 3×3?
The 3×3 Illustration Show is the only truly international competition for illustration. No other show is as completely international as ours. While many shows showcase the work of their own country’s illustrators, 3×3 knows no boundaries. Each year we receive entries from all corners of the globe and we’re the only show where the judging panels are truly international. And we’re the only show that puts their exclusive illustration annual coupled with our award-winning magazine on the newsstand at a price that every art director can afford. And with our redesigned size we’re front and centre on the shelf. Greater visibility for our winners. Greater visibility for illustration as a whole.Plus our winners will be invited to participate in our next 3×3 Illustration Directory which is mailed out free to a highly targeted list of 6,000+ art directors and art buyers in the US. And our free app will be available to all art directors and art buyers worldwide.

Picture Book Show entries must be sent to us no later than May 3, 2013
