Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
Greg Opalinski from Ridgewood, New York will be honored at the 28th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held on Sunday, 15 April, 2012 at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles. The event will celebrate the twenty four annual winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Greg was an illustrator winner. His art will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction/Fantasy anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXVIII.
Greg was born in Poland and has loved drawing since he was a child. In grade school his skills were exploited by his classmates, who demanded drawings of their favorite characters from the television show DragonBall Z and others. Greg realized that getting paid for drawing would be a great life.
Greg will fly to Los Angeles and participate in a week long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges lead by Cliff Nielsen (Chronicles of Narnia), Gary Meyer (Star Wars concept art), Vincent DiFate (NASA artist) to name a few. The workshop is then followed by the gala awards ceremony at the end of the week.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth.
