Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) November 16, 2011
Finalists for the 3rd Quarter of the 22nd year of the L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest were announced today by Joni Labaqui, the contest Director.
The finalists for this quarter are from Canada, and all four corners of the United States.

Stephanie Campbell of Michigan
Jamie Hansen of Arizona
John Haverty of Massachusetts
Paulina Klaser of Texas

The 9 finalists’ art is sent to four of the contest judges. Of the nine finalists, three will be winners of the quarter. The three winners of each quarter are awarded cash prizes, a week long intensive workshop, an awards ceremony and are also published in the annual L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future. Writers have their own contest and our winning illustrators illustrate the winning writers’ stories. The judging process, once the finalists are determined by the coordinating judge, takes a little over a month.
A Grand Prize winner is announced at the annual awards ceremony and is selected from another panel of judges and receives an additional $5,000.00.
“The Illustrators of the Future Contest is an effective means for aspiring illustrators to make their break in an industry well-known for being hard to break into for the newcomer,” Labaqui said.
More than 500 talented writers and illustrators have been given their opportunity to lead successful professional careers as winners of the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests over the past 25 years. And these rookies-turned-pro writers have gone on to publish over 500 novels and 3,000 short stories—accounting for some 31 million books sold—with several winners becoming New York Times best-selling authors.
