Hi Yinny and welcome to the forum! Always nice to see another illustrator here as it can be very rare!

I wish I could give you more insight into how results on the illustrator side of the contest works, but it's been very difficult to see any kind of pattern. The last time I submitted I never heard back at all, so I had to query Joni who confirmed that the illustrator winners had already been notified. This was not the first time that had happened, it actually happened 3 other times as well. Then I was in for quite a surprise when one time Joni sent me an email saying I got Semi Finalist, and that the illustrators would now have rankings like the writers side. Unfortunately the following two times I entered I was back to hearing nothing and having to query Joni. So I'm not really sure what is going on with it. I have submitted art for Q3, but as we are only 14 days past that deadline I'd say it will be a couple of months before I hear anything on that. Did you submit for Q3 or are you still waiting on Q2? If you haven't heard anything and you entered in Q2 I'd say give it a couple more weeks. Q2 results for the writers are just coming out now, and the illustrator side has always been a bit slower. I'd say if you haven't heard anything by August then it wouldn't hurt to query Joni.

Imagination Vortex, thanks so much for the insight! Any information about IOTF is news to me so this has been very helpful.
Q2 was my first ever submission and I'm still waiting to hear back. It kind of sucks that there seems to be no consistency in how illustrators are notified. Since Joni's latest general email suggested results will be going up on the website soon, I suspect all the finalists have been notified by now.
