ARTISTS: If you are an artist looking for representation or simply looking for a great creative challenge, be sure to enter our Global Talent Search 2016. You might just be the next artist we are looking for. Imagine getting representation with a top art agency and scoring tons of lucrative work right off the bat!
This year, the Global Talent Search will be bigger and better than ever, with over 17 top industry leaders who are judging Round Two. Together, we’ll be awarding the winner amazing licenses, commissions, and Skype consultations with some of the best art directors in the business. It’s almost impossible to get this kind of access to art buyers.
Some of the prestigious judges include art buyers from: American Girl, Chronicle Books, Nickelodeon, Quarry Books, Robert Kaufman Fabrics, Uppercase Magazine, Madison Park Greetings, Hallmark, Creative Co-Op, and Oopsy Daisy.
Check out some of the work by previous winners:

One of the many cool jobs she’s gotten with us since being represented.
Upon sign-up, all registrants also receive Lilla’s Top Tips: Learn how to prepare for professional competitions download for free.
I hope you’ll join us for this fun adventure! You’ll love our all-new assignments.
P. S. We’ve heard from artists who tell us that they’ve gotten work just by the exposure they’ve received from entering the GTS.
Often, an illustration can tell the story better than a photograph. Here are 5 reasons why to hire an illustrator. I’ve included a few recent examples by our artists.
1. Sometimes an art director wants some serious pop on the page, like this piece by Lisa DeJohn that was commissioned by the Boston Globe Magazine.
2. Illustration is perfect for maps. It can give the feel of the place through color and icons.
3. Everyone always reads a cartoon or comic strip, and these can illustrate a concept like nothing else.
4. Stunning typographic illustrations are a gorgeous way to design a page.
5. Take a typical scene like mealtime. Now ask an illustrator to make it visual appealing. Illustration adds personality and appeals to your demographic.
Hope you enjoyed the show. Lookin’ for some great art? Contact us to license, buy or commission art for your fabulous project.
