Applications are now closed. The 70 selected illustrators will be notified in August.
We are selecting 70 illustrators to be paired with art directors from The New York Times for individual portfolio critiques. The art directors will offer feedback and guidance to further your work.
All types of illustration will be considered (including photo-illustration, comics, graphic narrative, animation and other creative uses of time-based media). Unpublished and personal work is welcome.
Your name, your age, where you live, and to tell us a few words about yourself. We’ll also ask for a single link that directs us to at least 5 examples of your work: a personal site, an Instagram feed or a Google Drive.
If your portfolio is selected for review, we’ll contact you in August. You’ll then be paired with a number of art directors who will meet with you virtually to discuss your work (reviews will take place in early fall). Due to the volume of submissions, those who are not selected will not be contacted.
