J.K. Rowling invited budding young artists between the ages of 7 to 12 years old to illustrate The Ickabog, for the once in a lifetime chance to be featured in The Ickabog book, which will be published on November 10, 2020.

Over 42,000 entries were received from children across the United States and Canada. The quality, diversity, and sheer imagination of the children’s artwork was incredible to see.

Thank you to everyone who participated in The Ickabog illustration competition, and congratulations to the 34 winners. The winning illustrations can be viewed below.
