"Illustrators of the Future: First 25 Years" ...

Postby soulmirror » Thu Mar 15, 2012 5:29 am

To honor the first 25 years of the L. Ron Hubbard's Illustrators of
the Future
Contest, Galaxy Press will be publishing an illustrated coffee
table book featuring sample art and the success stories of those who have
participated in the contest. Pictures of past winners, Awards ceremonies,
workshops, and supporting events will be included.


Well, I think the first ILLUSTRATORS contest appeared in 1990 ???

So the "First 25 Years" is maybe still a few years away (?) ... giving everyone plenty time to create, submit, and WIN their page in ILLUSTRATORS of the Future!

The WRITERS already have their 25 YEARS OF ... book!
And a cool, info-packed, and fun book it is!

So ...
for those entering or jonesing to enter IotF ...
or those of us eager to get enuf projects together to crow about in a lil ol' blurb in a honking beeg coffee table book ...
... another reason to shovel more coal in the locomotive fire and speed on down the tracks! wotf008

Cool! Thanks for the correction, Stephen! I read the "1990" comment somewhere and I guess I should've double-checked that ... But the sooner the better!

2013 -- yayyyyyyyy! wotf008

Come visit the new(ish) website Val Lakey Lindahn and Meliva Koch (and no doubt MANY hardworking others, because it looks like a BIG project) are e-asking past IOTF folks to contribute to!

It's a glimpse of the BIG OL' BOOK to come!

It'd be super-neato to have BIG artist / contestant participation and turn it into an on-line museum of 25 years of IOTF artists' work!!!

Ms Meliva Koch reminds us that THIS Sept. 30
will be the last contest quarter in the first 25 years of the ILLUSTRATORS' contest!

So ... I wonder if this deadline is our last opportunity to find a place in the up-coming 25 Years of IOTF Illustration book ???

It's extra especial motivation to get those contest entries in by Sept. 30 !!!

Just an update ... wotf006 It's been a very long time!

Here's the IOTF website's WINNING ARTISTS' ART GALLERIES .. well, at least for years
2011,
2012, and
2013.

http://www.writersofthefuture.com/illustrator-winners/

Click on the thumbnail on left, art gets big, click on that and it gets still bigger!
Amazing artists in the IOTF contest ... I wish they'd showcase more years winners!

Anyone heard anything about if the contest is still planning a 25 years retrospective book of the ILLUSTRATOR contest?

The book about the WRITERS contest is wonderful!
