ISSIG logo

Background

This Special Interest Group will focus on issues relating to standards, training and employment for those working in archaeological illustration and survey. This group was formerly called the Illustration and Survey special interest group. The group have finalised a new specialist matrix to assist the corporate validation process for Illustrators. To request a copy please email membership@archaeologists.net.

Join the Group

Membership of the Group is open to anybody working in the various disciplines producing archaeological graphics in the broadest sense. IfA members may join the group for free, while non-members are asked to pay a £10.00 fee to cover mailing costs. Please contact the IfA office at groups@archaeologists.net

Website

We are pleased to announce the launch of the new GAG website that can be found at this address www.gag-ifa.org

As you can see, the site has been given a more contemporary look and feel. Most importantly, the gallery allows for the display of larger images.

If you are interested in displaying your own images within the gallery we would like to receive them, but you must be a MIfA grade member. Please email contact@gag-ifa.org with a note of interest and we will send you the requirements.

You will then be invited to a link on Dropbox, where you may upload up to 12 gallery images and a text document about yourself.

We look forward to receiving your notes of interest!

If you would like to display your images, but are not MIfA grade, please do consider applying to upgrade. Further information about this can be found at www.archaeologists.net/join/individual
