Press Release

Giulio Iurissevich's "The Elders" Selected for Publication in UK Association of Illustrators Images 30 Awards Annual

LONDON,UK—November 17, 2005—The judging of illustrations for The Association of Illustrators Images 30 Annual and exhibition has recently taken place, and once again, Giulio Iurissevich will be included in the publication.

The only jury-selected annual in the UK, Images represents a review of the year's best contemporary illustration, providing an indispensable tool for leading commissioners and industry professionals. An international panel of judges, including highly regarded commissioners of illustration, successful illustrators and cultural commentators, marks each entry according to how well the work fulfills the brief, originality, and technical ability. The chosen works are published in the Images annual and a selection of these works included in the accompanying Images exhibition at a central London venue and the nation wide Images tour.

Giulio Iurissevich currently resides in Pordenone, Italy. He first began his career in law before returning to his first passion, making pictures, in 1998. He is now an accomplished illustrator specializing in fashion, beauty and lifestyle illustration. Driven by instinct and inspired by the female form, Iurissevich’s work explores volume, geometry and color—reducing unnecessary effects and focusing instead on clean lines and forms.

Images is an awards book and touring exhibition. Annually distributed, free, to over 4000 commissioners, the Images book is considered British illustration's most important document. Each year the contents are selected from hundreds of entries by seven separate juries of influential figures in the creative industry - art directors from advertising, periodical and book publishing, illustrators' agents and practicing illustrators. The featured work is by artists at all levels of experience and covers all the fields in which illustration is commissioned or inspired.

The AOI was established in 1973 to advance and protect illustrator’s rights and encourage professional standards. The AOI is a non-profit making trade association dedicated to its members’ professional interests and the promotion of illustration.
