The AI-AP juried annual books, still published in all their large-format, hardcover glory, stay true to their founding principles of lavishly showcasing commissioned and personal work that's ahead of its time, while honoring the publications, creatives and agencies that insist on assigning original, thought-provoking work. Students and schools are also celebrated right along side established and emerging artists.

For over 30 years American Illustration and American Photography have done two things very well: Honor great work and connect the winning Illustrators and photographers to assigning creatives. Our simple mission has been successful by inviting an impassioned jury of top art directors, photo editors, designers and art buyers to select the wining images and designing one-of-kind hardcover books that generously presents the best work one image per page. The result are two well-curated, beautiful, large-format annuals, regarded as the books of record and exclusive resources for art, photo and design professionals who insist on assigning only the finest photographers and illustrators working today. See list of PAST JURORS.

AI-AP has since expanded its mission through a series of popular, daily newsletters: Pro Photo Daily, DART: Design Arts Daily, Motion Arts Pro, Dispatches From Latin America and coming soon, Profiles. AI-AP also proudly produces two annual events, the highly-anticipated book launch Party and BIG TALK symposium, that bring the creative community together over two days of talks, networking and celebrating in November.
