The Guardian Illustration Prize

Win a paid commission to design the Guardian’s brand presence at Glastonbury festival 2020. Open for entries until 11 October

The Guardian is hosting a competition for the best new talent in illustration. The prize is an £8,000 commission to create the look and feel for our presence at Glastonbury festival’s 50th anniversary in 2020.

Your work will be judged by a panel of top creative professionals. As well as the commission, the winner will also receive a large framed print by our print partner, RoomFifty.

Since 1997, the Guardian has been Glastonbury’s media partner. From reporting the length and breadth of the festival, to selling the newspaper on site, it’s one of our biggest brand partnerships.
