HEY! Illustrators! Call For Entries, Here!
Living in hoity-toity New York (I have the credentials to say that, having grown up in Kalamazoo and all) I like to take note of hoity-toity metropolitan groups and contests. And none are quite so much with the hoits and the toits than The Society of Illustrators. I get goose pimples just saying the name. Well, it seems that right now this here society is calling for entries for The 26th Annual Exhibition of “The Original Art”. That means that if you're an illustrator then you've a chance to get some pretty high-faluting notice. And who, you may ask, is chairing the committee that will choose the winner? None other than Still the Nicest Guy In the World Brian Selznick, of course. It gets better. Check out who's going to be on the jury: Molly Bang, Bryan Collier, Diane Dillon, Mordecai Gerstein, and Chris Raschka amongst others. The entry deadline is August 1st. Make me proud, sweeties.
