Picture Hooks: mentoring scheme

Picture Hooks are now taking applications for their 2018-2019 mentoring scheme.

Five emerging illustrators will be matched with five eminent and established illustrators for nine months.  You and your mentor will focus on particular aspects of the illustrators' work. For the mentee, it is a similar experience to working closely with an editor for a year, but with the additional opportunity to experiment and work outside your comfort zone, trying new techniques and methods.

One mentee will be awarded the title of the Picture Hook Illustrator of the year.

Please  read the guidelines thoroughly before submitting an application.

The deadline for applications is midnight (GMT) on 30th September 2018.

Applications should be submitted via the online entry form.

More information on the scheme can be found here - and profiles of past mentees and their mentors here.
