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.
