Please provide 12 quality reproductions of your best images in a portfolio format. Include examples of illustrative works which show continuity and versatility.

Jurying by Website or Disc:
The Island Illustrators Society does not jury by web site or by disc submissions. The hard copy portfolio format reflects both the publishers' and galleries' markets and allows us to assess an illustrator's ability to provide a professional quality product. You are welcome to make note of web links or tear sheets, but the hard copy portfolio, c.v., membership forms and fee’s, are required for jurying.
