"I always advertise in 'Contact' and 'Food & Drink Contact'. They are the only publications over the years that have got me work- some clients becoming regulars. People who call up often mention seeing the Contact ads. None of the other source books I have been in over the years have really worked for me - I don't do anything else now."

Simon Smith - Photographer

"I have advertised in ten issues of Contact, and I have always found it to be the most valuable way to advertise my work. Every issue has brought me some great commissions, including one project from a supermarket chain for a range of packaging that lasted for four years. I also get work from past issues of Contact, which shows that buyers keep their copies and continue to use them.

To me Contact is THE resource for anyone looking to commission illustration. I personally look forward to receiving my copy every year and being awed by the talent of UK illustrators!"

Louise Gardner, Illustrator

"Contact have consistently delivered a high profile marketing platform for me to display my work on the international stage. I believe in the opportunity and process of self branding, looking back I feel fortunate of the close association I have maintained with Contact over the years."

Chris Mitchell, Illustrator

"For all illustrators, Contact Directory is the Rolls Royce of advertising!"

Nick Diggory, Illustrator

"Contact has worked for me from the first time I opted to go in. I've tried to keep my page spreads professional and up to date,and I think it helps if the work illustrated clearly demonstrates to a potential client exactly what kind of work I am interested in - have done in the past - and am capable of supplying for their project. As a shop window to the art buying world it is the most important promotion that I budget for."
