EIF is a network of 17 national Associations of illustrators based in 14 European countries.  We represent over 11600 illustrators based in Europe.

The EIF defends the rights of illustrators and promotes illustration within Europe. We represent our members' common interests by liasing with other networks and authorities of the European Union.

The EIF furthers exchange of knowledge and critical debate between professional
illustrators and their clients across Europe through conferences, exhibitions, research and education.
