I believe BOTH the Writer and Illustrator receive a lovely, enlarged, framed print of the story's illustration (from the contest) It's lovely.
Some artists are digital, so the only "original" resides inside their computer. Anything else is a print (and again, the contest gives us a killer print) so there's no "original" to buy.
And MY original illustration for #27
is a ratty little drawing on a mis-shapen piece of art paper, whited out, with pencil lines I could never really get rid of to the naked human eye (but could mostly Photoshop out after I scanned it)
As an original piece of art it would hang upon any writer's wall and eat deeper into their writer's soul than any raven perched on any bust of Pallas Athena!
Alas, it can't all be museum-quality objects of beauty in and of themselves!
Here though is cool art from past IOTF winners:
