Hints For Entering L. Ron Hubbard's Illustrators Contest by Val Lakey Lindahn
Here are a few suggestions to help give your submission the best possible chance of making it into the finals.
1. You will receive a higher score if all 3 illustrations are consistent in style and technique. Just as an Art Director looks for this quality so that they will know what they're getting when they assign a project. Choose your best style, only submit your very best work.
2. Tell a story. Look at a copy of L. Ron Hubbard's Writers & Illustrators Annual Anthology or visit the WOTF website. You will see that the illustrations tell a story. They are engaging and make you want to read the writers story. They have backgrounds that give the reader a clue where the story takes place. The illustrations are not just pretty portraits.
3. Be persistent. If you are not selected as a finalist, enter again the next quarter.
Be sure and come back to this site next week when I will have more tips for you. And Good Luck!
