Juried Art Show Prompt: “They spent a fine, long day together.”

Who can enter? ANYONE in the state of Alaska, not just attendees of the conference, and it is a HUGE opportunity for Alaskan illustrators to get their work in front of editors, agents, and authors looking for an illustrator. 

Here’s what you need to do: Create 1 piece inspired by the prompt. Submit only your BEST work and stay true to yourself!

CRITERIA: The name of the game is CHILDREN’S BOOKS. This is not a fine art show. Our select judges will be looking for dynamic pieces that also fit into the realm of books for young readers.

See the Juried Art Show page for more details on registering, and on the criteria and formatting for submission.

PORTFOLIO DISPLAY: IF you are registered for the conference, you may also submit ONE portfolio for display for free (NO original art!). There is no contest for Portfolios. Details on what to submit can also be found on the Juried Art Show page. You will still need to register for this as well.

We would appreciate it if you’d let us know by August 31st so we know how many tables we will need. But you can register for the event up until September 17. We really hope you are going to show your work. We’d hate for you to miss out.

We do not accept responsibility for artwork, lost or damaged, during the weekend.

Artwork will be displayed all day Saturday at the conference.

Winners: Two categories: Best in Show and People’s Choice.
