The AOI, a not for profit membership organisation, is the UK’s leading illustration body, supporting and sustaining illustrators and the industry through advice, guidance, campaigning and a public programme. Our professional advice and guidance includes a website bursting with information, portfolio surgeries and publications including The Illustrator’s Guide to Law and Business Practice and Directories of leading commissioners.
We are able to provide members with bespoke advice on all professional areas through our dedicated email and phone line. Our public programme includes the internationally recognised World Illustration Awards, the Prize for Illustration and a growing range of talks and events. Through our campaigning work AOI has successfully increased the standing of illustration as a profession and improved the commercial and ethical conditions of employment for illustrators.
