The Spectrum has announced that it is now accepting artist submissions for its 17th annual of fantastic art. Volume 16 has reached U.S. docks and will be shipping out soon.
If you do imaginative art, it's a good idea to enter the Spectrum competition because its entry fees are reasonable, they give you a copy of the book if you get accepted, the quality of printing is unmatched, the level of talent is stratospheric, and the book is very well distributed. Categories include Comic Art, Book Illustration, Concept Art, Dimensional, Advertising, and Institutional.
This year's Call For Entries poster (click to enlarge) was designed by Paolo Rivera. Copies of his poster will soon be sent out via mail to US addresses. Foreign entrants (and those not currently on the mailing list) can download both the poster and entry forms from the website.
