If you create paleoart, be sure to enter your work for consideration for the Lanzendorf Prize. The deadline is April 1, and the winners each receive a $600 prize payment.
Paleoart is “the scientific or naturalistic rendering of paleontological subject matter pertaining to vertebrate fossils.”
The John J. Lanzendorf PaleoArt Prize recognizes outstanding achievement in paleontological scientific illustration and naturalistic art. These are the only art awards chosen by the scientists themselves to recognize the work that brings their discoveries to life.
Categories include scientific illustration, 2-dimensional art, 3-dimensional art, and the National Geographic Digital Modeling and Animation Award.
Here’s more about the contest and eligibility and the submission procedure.
