The judges for this year are named on the cover of this book. And, as has been true since the beginning of the Contests, these professionals comprise many of today’s top names in the fields of science fiction and fantasy literature and art.
This year, we are proud to welcome on board as our latest judges, Rebecca Moesta for the Writers of the Future and Stephan Martiniere for the Illustrators of the Future.
Rebecca is author of thirty science fiction and fantasy novels, writing for all ages from children to young adult to adult. She has also co-authored several books with her husband and Contest judge, Kevin J. Anderson.
Stephan has won multiple awards for his illustration and animation including the British Science Fiction Association Award for Best Cover in 2004, the Chesley Award for best hardcover in 2006 and the Thea Award for his work in the Paramount theme park in 2001.
