Picture this 2019
In 2019 I was one of the three winners of the ‘Picture This’ competition. 

Jury report
Aida de Jong tell a relevant and contemporary story. In her illustrations she convincinly depicts the pollution of the sea, the threat posed to animals, but also the opportunity to do something about it. With seemingly simple shapes with an eye for many comical details, the theme does not become too heavy but is cast in an optimistic light
