Illustration student wins picture book prize

18 May 2018

BA (Hons) Illustration student Robin Mommers has taken third place in this year’s Carmelite Picture Book Prize, taking home a cash prize of £250.

The Carmelite Prize was created to recognise excellence in children’s book illustration, with the aim of encouraging the next generation of illustrators for children’s stories. This year, undergraduate students were asked to create two colour spreads for Peter Bently’s ‘Where the Sea Meets the Sky’, a rhyming story about a sea otter.

Robin’s work was selected by judges from Hachette Children’s Group, one of the UK's largest children’s book publishers.
