Dracopedia: The Great Dragons is coming out this month, and to celebrate I am holding a Student Art Contest! I hope that you will all have fun with this idea and show me the fantastic work that you've been doing. They'll be prizes and guest judges, so I can't wait to see what you'll all come up with.
Here are the Details:
The Challenge: Design and illustrate an original dragon of your own. Any kind of dragon is acceptable, and in any medium and any format. One entry per person please. The more original the better! I'm really interested in seeing what fantastical designs you'll come up with.
Deadline: June 25, 2012.
firstname.lastname@example.org and place "Dracopedia Challenge" in the subject line. Please include a brief note with your name, age, where you're from and tell me about your dragon. If you have any questions please leave them in the comment space.
Entry Requirements: This contest is geared towards young artists and students in order to give them a showcase to share their work, so to be fair I am limiting the contest to students and young enthusiasts up to age 21. For you professionals and semi-professionals, try to get your students and young friends involved. I have no way of verifying your information, so lets all use the honor system! Thanks.
Prizes: All the entries will be displayed on The Dracopedia Project after the deadline passes and the winners will be announced. There will be two categories. Youth Category will be for anyone up to the age of 15. Student Category will be for anyone 16 to 21. First Prize in each category will be an original drawing from Dracopedia:The Great Dragons and a signed copy of the new Book. Second prize in each category will be a signed copy of Dracopedia: the Great Dragons.
Guest Judges: I'm very excited to have three friends and colleagues that have agreed to help me in this contest. Dan Dos Santos, Lars Grant West and Todd Lockwood.
I hope you all have fun, and I can't wait to see your dragons!!
