L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers and Illustrators of the Future Illustrator Winners of 2020 & 2021 presented their artwork to the writer winners.
HOLLYWOOD, CA, UNITED STATES, October 21, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A feeling of anticipation hung in the air of the Hollywood Roosevelt this week as the Illustrator winners of L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests for the years 2020 and 2021 revealed their art to the writer winners at one of the special events during a week-long workshop attended by the annual winners of both Contests. New artists need that vote of confidence to persist and not give up – whether authors or illustrators desperately. The L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests exist to provide that much-needed recognition.
Illustrator winners are commissioned to illustrate the winning stories from the writing contest. Up to this point, the authors have not seen their story art or met their story’s artist. Illustrators are stationed around the room away from where all the art pieces are positioned on easels. The writers are then invited into the room to find their story’s illustration at which point the artist introduces themself to the writer. The illustrator is anxious to learn if their author likes it. The author is equally anxious to learn how an artist views their story. The Art Reveal is one of the most emotional events during the entire workshop week.
As Luke Wildman, the writer of "How to Steal the Plot Armor" put it, “I was humbled to see someone with so much talent create art like that for my story. There were so many details from my story which I had forgotten about and Dan Watson (winning artist from the United Kingdom) captured them so well.”
Echo Chernik, the Coordinating judge for L. Ron Hubbard’s Illustrators of the Future Contest has art directed and mentored the Illustrator winners from the last two years. Regarding this moment where illustrators reveal their art to the writers, Chernik stated, “I work with each artist to guide them in making their best art piece without compromising their artistic vision. To me, everyone is a Grand Prize winner.”
"L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume 36" was released last year in an online event due to the pandemic and is currently available in stores and online.

The Writers of the Future writing contest was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 to provide “a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged.” Based on its success, its sister contest, Illustrators of the Future was created five years later to provide that same opportunity for the aspiring artist.
