Event description

The 4th edition of the Illustrators Wall will stay online from 16 February through to 31 August 2023. The Wall offers visitors and sector professionals an opportunity to explore what’s happening in illustration throughout the world; it also gives participating illustrators an exceptional chance to show what they can do and introduce themselves, providing their email, website and social profile.

The Illustrators Wall will be promoted from March through August 2023 on all BCBF 2023’s digital channels.

Opportunities galore at BCBF’s 60th edition from 6 to 9 March 2023!

Alongside the Illustrators Wall – as usual at the Fair’s Services Centre – showing the incredible talent and enthusiasm of visiting illustrators, graphic artists and artists of all ages – whether well-known or just starting out – video monitors will also be displaying the Virtual Illustrators Wall.

For the full 4 days of the Fair, all digital Wall content will be played in a loop.

A simple QRcode link to our website will also allow more in-depth navigation of the illustrations uploaded.

It’s a further opportunity not only for illustrators who can’t make it to the fair but also for those present to get noticed by sector professionals at BCBF.

There’s no limit to the digital Illustrators Wall. It’s ready to take on board the wealth of illustrator, graphic artist and artist talent out there, of whatever age and professional status.
