Juried Collection

American Illustration-American Photography (AI-AP) present its fifth annual collection to honor the best work being created today in or about Latin America by an international roster of established, emerging and student illustrators and photographers in a global, multi-cultural exchange of art and ideas. Latin American Fotografía and Ilustración 5 (LAF/LAI) was judged by an international panel of top creatives who commission illustration and photography for use in magazines, advertising, books, posters, packaging, promotion and video, and includes fine art and student work. From the winning collection, 10 photographs and 10 illustrations were selected to be part of the LOS DIEZ traveling exhibition, sponsored by Epson.


The AI-AP juried award annuals, offering high visibility and well-deserved recognition where it matters most, are still published in all their large-format, luxurious, hardcover glory. Staying true to their founding principles of celebrating great photographers and illustrators, the awards lavishly showcase commissioned and personal work that’s ahead of its time, while honoring the publications, creatives and agencies responsible for assigning and utilizing the winning images. Students and schools are also celebrated right along side established and emerging artists.

Founded in 1982 by a committee of esteemed illustrators and art directors, AI-AP was created as a direct alternative to other leading organizations and companies of the day who it was thought were not recognizing unconventional, ‘cutting-edge’ work produced by unheralded artists who were pushing the boundaries of commercial work. The acclaimed AI-AP books, objects of beauty and debate, published annually in November, are the first and foremost go-to resources for art directors, designers, photo editors and art buyers who insist on assigning only the best original, thoughtful and compelling pictures.
