Kate Milner, who will graduate from Anglia Ruskin University this autumn, has won the prestigious Student Illustrator of the Year title at the V&A Illustration Awards 2016.
Milner’s My Name Is Not ‘Refugee’ is a picture book about a boy’s experience of setting off on a long journey to another country. The narrative avoids big political issues and the worst of refugees’ experiences. Instead it tries to express what it is like to leave your own country for a different culture.
