Age Limit?

Postby Chris533 » Wed Oct 04, 2017 7:32 pm

Is there a minimum age limit? I have a relative who is 14/15 - and he's a great artist. Can he enter the illustrator's contest? Does anyone know of someone his age winning?

I read over the rules on the main site and didn't see any age restrictions for either part of the contest, although I'm not overly familiar with the illustrator's side of things.

I think there have been winners under 18 (particularly on the illustration side), but the key matter is "if they win, can they travel to Hollywood alone?" Joni will allow you to postpone your workshop for one year but no more, so perhaps best not to waste a shot if you can't take advantage of it in time.

On the submission form there's a spot for your age. I'm far enough up that I don't recall if there's anything under 18. But that would be a good place to start.

I believe the submission age runs the table.
It starts at 1.
