L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of The Future Contest

“A culture is as rich and as capable of surviving as
it has imaginative artists. The artist is looked upon to start things.
The artist injects the spirit of life
into a culture. And through his creative endeavors,
the writer works continually to give tomorrow a new form.”

—L. Ron Hubbard

The Contest is open to new and amateur artists who have not been professionally published and paid for more than three black-and-white story illustrations, or more than one process-color painting, in media distributed broadly to the general public. The ultimate eligibility criteria, however, is defined with the word “amateur”—in other words, the artist has not been paid for his artwork. If you are not sure of your eligibility, please write an email or letter to the Contest Administration with details regarding your publication history. Include a self addressed and stamped envelope for the reply.
