Anglia Ruskin University student Maria J Guarda has won this year’s Macmillan Prize for Illustration with her story of a family in exile.

Maria, who is originally from Santiago, Chile, and now lives in Cambridge where she is a student on the MA Children’s Book Illustration course at the Cambridge School of Art, won the award for her work ‘Paloma Flew’. The work shows a family struggling with a life away from their own country and is told through the eyes of a young girl.

Anglia Ruskin also claimed third prize thanks to Marina Ruiz’s ‘Your Home, My Home’, while the runner-up award went to Soojin Kwak from the Kingston School of Art.
