• I’m an illustrator – can I send Usborne samples of my work?

  • We are always looking for brilliant new artists. We are interested in all styles of illustration: colourful, bright and fun; quirky, stylish and beautiful; detailed and informative.

    We publish illustrated books for children across a wide range of ages, from babies right up to young adults, including both fiction and non-fiction.

    If you would like to send samples of your work to our art department, please fill in the form below. 

    We'll ask you to upload a PDF with a range of examples you feel demonstrates your work. This PDF will be printed and shared with our design team. Please don’t supply links to online portfolios.

    Whilst we will do all we can to look carefully at all submissions, we are sorry that we cannot guarantee a reply.
