The 8 finalists art is sent to 4 of the contest judges. Of the 8 finalists, 3 will be winners of the quarter. The 3 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 the publishing industry, an industry well-known for being closed to the newcomer,” Labaqui said.
