The 2017 Readers’ Favorite Illustration Award recognizes books with quality illustrations. All illustration types are welcome and there are no requirements on how many illustrations you must have to compete for the award. Whether your book is a children’s picture book or an illustrated how-to guide, as long as your book has original illustrated artwork that you either created yourself or had created by an artist, then you can enter your book to compete for this additional award.

The Illustration Award is a separate award, which may be won by its self or in conjunction with a standard Gold, Silver, Bronze, Honorable mention or Finalist award in your primary contest category.
