Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
Finalists for the 3rd Quarter of the 24th year of the L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest were announced today by Ron Lindahn, the contest Coordinating judge.
The finalists for this quarter are from Portugal and throughout the United States.

Lucas Durham of Illinois
Tiffany England of California
Chloe Janowski of Texas
Jenna Kass of New York
Aldo Katayanagi of Illinois
Brian McCulloch of Mississippi

The ten finalists art is sent to four of the contest judges. Of the ten 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 the publishing industry, an industry well-known for being closed to the newcomer. We normally have eight finalists but this quarter we had an exceptional amount of talented artists entering. I just had to extend it.” Lindahn said.
