Each year, Austin SCBWI holds a Portfolio Showcase as part of its annual conference, which offers illustrators a chance to display their work to faculty and conference attendees.
A jury of attending industry professionals will select a Grand Prize Winner and two Honors Winners.
The Grand Prize Winner will receive:
- A year's membership to SCBWI (if you are already a member, your membership for the next year will be paid for)
- $50 art supply gift certificate
- The opportunity to design the banner for the SCBWI Austin website, e-newsletter, Facebook Community Water Cooler and the chapter's other social media pages. That illustrated banner will be on display until we've received the next winner's banner and included in a gallery of past headers going forward. The winning illustrator will be promoted along with their artwork, including links to their website.
The two Honors Winners will receive gift certificates to an art supply store.
