Prize for Illustration 2017: Sounds of the CitySelected by a panel of judges from over 1,000 submissions, these 100 entries shortlisted for the 2017 Prize for Illustration reflect the Sounds of the City. Taking inspiration from the familiar, the curious, the persistent and the distinctive chorus of sounds we hear about us day and night, this is a celebration of the hubbub and the quiet spaces, the songs and the sounds, of our vibrant, diverse, multi-layered cities. On display at the London Transport Museum, in the Exterion Media Gallery, entry is included in the admission ticket, which allows unlimited daytime entry for the whole year.

 

About London Transport Museum

After a two-year, £22 million refurbishment the London Transport Museum reopened on 22 November 2007 revealing more exhibition space than before. The museum travels back through the 200-year history of public transport, arranged according to several themes: London Transport's famous design heritage, the poster collection, public transport during both World Wars and plans for the capital's development in the twenty-first century.
