It's the annual that most art buyers look at, and if you get your work in, you'll be in good company. Some students have gotten their work in and it has made a big difference in their careers.The entry fee is low and there's no "hanging" or "publication" fee -- and if your work is accepted, you get the gorgeous book, called Spectrum 18: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art.
It's a great jury this year:Scott Gustafson – Artist
Peter de Sève – Artist and film designer
Jeremy Cranford – Senior Art Manager/Blizzard Entertainment
Jon Schindehette – Senior Creative Director/Wizards of the Coast
Dawn Rivera-Ernster – Director: Talent Development & Recruitment/Walt Disney Animation Studios
Entries must be postmarked on January 27, 2012. I just sent mine in today.
