One of the most known and respected vehicles for supporting new and fledgling authors and illustrators is the world-acclaimed, free-to-enter global contests called L. Ron Hubbard's Writers and Illustrators of the Future. The writers contest is celebrating it's 30th year this year and the illustrators contest is celebrating it's 25th year. Created by international best-selling author L. Ron Hubbard, the merit-based Writers of the Future Contest was initiated to discover and encourage talented beginning writers of science fiction and fantasy. The illustrator contest started 5 years later. Quarterly winners of the Contest appear in the best-selling annual anthology, receive cash prizes, and attend an all-expenses paid gala awards ceremony and workshop.
The Writers and Illustrators of the Future contests are that break new writers or illustrators can use to launch the career they’ve dreamed of. In fact, the contest has launched the careers of twelve New York Times bestselling authors, and hundreds of illustrator careers.
If you’ve ever thought of becoming an author or illustrator, no matter where you live, you have a golden opportunity to make it happen.
