Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2014
Michelle Lockamy of Jackson, New Jersey, an art student at Moore College, will attend the 30th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held in April 2015 in Los Angeles as a winner. The event celebrates this year's winners in the L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future contest. Her winning art will be published in the bestselling Science Fiction anthology series – L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXXI.
Michelle will be flown to Los Angeles with other winners from all corners of the globe. They will be treated to a week-long workshop taught by the contest blue ribbon panel of judges including Cliff Nielsen (Chronicles of Narnia), Larry Elmore (Dungeons and Dragons), Steven Hickman and others, followed by the gala awards ceremony.
Michelle heard about the Illustrators of the Future contest in high school from her art teacher and then started working on the 3 pieces that she would submit and then win the contest with. "This artist has great talent", said contest judge Cliff Nielsen. "She will carve herself a place in the industry if she persists."
The Contest was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1984 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth, and to date the contest has launched the careers of hundreds of illustrators.
