New York artist Necdet Yilmaz has won the £3000 first prize in the inaugural Society of Artists Agents Illustration Awards, which aim to boost the profile and status of illustration. Part of the Transport for London/ London Underground Platform for Art initiative, the brief was to design a Tube poster that informed Londoners of the capital’s cultural heritage. Turkish-born Yilmaz’s entry (pictured) uses pedestrians’ shadows to convey various London icons from Big Ben to Piccadilly’s statue of Eros. The competition exhibition, including silver and bronze award winners Paul Blow and Susan Hellard, runs at London’s Transport Museum in Covent Garden, London WC2 until 4 April.
