Draw This!


Draw This!


Draw This! is a monthly art prompt that is part of SCBWI INSIGHT. Members have the opportunity each month to show their artwork in a social media gallery and two winning pieces are featured in the INSIGHT email and the homepage of the website. The Twitter and Instagram galleries are open to public viewing, so agents, art directors, and editors have yet another way of finding our illustrators. 


SCBWI reserves the right not to confer this contest in any given month. 



Deadline for the monthly Draw This! is the last day of each month.






  • You must be a current SCBWI member to submit. 
  • Post your work to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #SCBWIDrawThis.
  • Artwork must be inspired by the prompt word in some way.
  • Art may be B&W, grayscale, or RGB color.
  • Vignettes, line art, and full-bleed art are welcome.


Failure to follow these guidelines will result in exclusion from the online gallery. For questions, email
