For my illustrator friends: the contest just published the winning submissions from this year’s Illustrators of the Future…something they haven’t done before (as I understand it). I know it has helped my writing to read the winning stories. I hope this helps your illustrations.

That's a great new thing, very cool showcasing the winning artists' art! I hope they keep on doing it!

I had always hoped they'd publish a big color book featuring ALL the Contest's ARTIST / ILLUSTRATORS (similar to their "The First 25 Years of WOTF" book from many years ago -- the idea had been mentioned but I guess nothing came of it) ... 

I see that used copies are pretty inexpensive on Amazon. Definitely a great and entertaining book for contest folks!

Definitely worth looking at! I’ve been exploring the winners art from their portfolios at the gala(I live close) but this is definitely more comprehensive and illuminating.
