International Award on Scientific and Naturalist Illustration -- Illustraciencia

  • Crimson Education
  • Barcelona, Spain
University Selection Competition Performing Arts


Illustraciencia is an international competition for scientific and natural illustration. Open only to adult participants, this can be an interesting opportunity to a high schooler who has already turned 18.

It could be, however, that the competition's organisers are persuaded to exceptionally accept a submission from an underage illustrator among the 40 works they will select to form a travelling exhibition.

Illustraciencia is backed by major institutions including a governmental ministry, the national foundation for the sciences and technology (FECYT) and the National Museum of Natural Sciences.
