Poster Prize for Illustration 2019: London Stories

The Poster Prize for Illustration 2019: London Stories

Across the ages, London has produced and inspired countless stories. Fictitious or real characters and events in this amazing city have always held a fascination, from the anecdotal urban myth to grand tales of historic legend – from the everyday to the curious, and from the past to the present. The Poster Prize for Illustration competition 2019 was made up of art that is colourful, inspiring and celebrates the vibrant, multi-layered city that is London.

The exhibition has now closed in the Museum but we are excited to share the 2019 Poster Prize for Illustration with you online as one of our new digitised exhibitions on Google Arts & Culture. 

London Stories was organised by the Museum in partnership with the Association of Illustrators (AOI)
