New Picture Hooks illustration award goes to ARU Lecturer
Awarded bi-annually by Picture Hooks, the new award recognises the work of illustrators with a 'quiet reach and huge influence'.
The awarding panel described Pam as a 'skilled and talented illustrator with a remarkable body of work. She is fully committed to the value and importance of picture books; someone who has supported and inspired other illustrators, but done so 'invisibly' – modest, unassuming, steadily supporting others for years without looking for acclaim.'
Picture Hooks is a programme run by experienced professionals from both the illustration and publishing sides of the children’s book industry. Based in Edinburgh, they provide worldwide support and opportunities for emerging illustrators to access the world of children’s publishing, including mentorship schemes, conferences and masterclasses.
