We are excited to announce a great new feature for our illustrator members, Draw This!: a monthly art prompt that will be part of the new SCBWI INSIGHT. Members will have the opportunity each month to show their artwork in the online gallery and two pieces will be featured in the e-mail itself. The online gallery will be open to public viewing, so agents, art directors and editors have yet another way of finding our illustrators. Two winners will have their art displayed on the home page and publicized through SCBWI social media channels.
SCBWI reserves the right not to confer this contest in any given month. See complete contest rules Here.
The April 2017 Draw This! prompt word is: SURPRISE
Deadline for the monthly Draw This! is the 20th of each month.
(Turn a submission in by April 20th to be included in the Surprise gallery)
TIP: Tweet, Facebook and Instagram your submissions! Tag your art #scbwidrawthis
(this is not how you submit your art, it's just an extra way to promote your work)
TIP: Once the gallery is live each month, find your entry and write your website or blog address in the comment section.
