    L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest - Outside Award

    The L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest was launched in 1988 as an expression of L. Ron Hubbard's wish that the relationship between the written word and the illustrator's art would not die. Since its inception, it has spanned the globe in its appeal to the new and amateur artist for which it was designed, bridging cultural, economic and language barriers.

    L. Ron Hubbard produced more than 250 published works of fiction in his writing career. Yet it was from the Golden Age of Science Fiction (1938-1950), in which he played such an instrumental part, that he fondly remembered that the illustrators of those stories were as important to the readers as were the writers. Thus, by its design and since its inception, the L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest winners, three each quarter, illustrate a winning story from the Writers of the Future Contest. These rendered illustrations are not only entered in the Grand Prize competition, but are published in the L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future anthology with their respective companion story.

    All themes of science fiction and fantasy illustrations are welcome: every entry is judged on its own merits only. No entry fee is required and all rights in the entry remain the property of the artist.

    Please visit the L. Ron Hubbbard website for more information. No deadline date.

    L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest - Outside Award

    The L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest was launched in 1988 as an expression of L. Ron Hubbard's wish that the relationship between the written word and the illustrator's art would not die. Since its inception, it has spanned the globe in its appeal to the new and amateur artist for which it was designed, bridging cultural, economic and language barriers.

    L. Ron Hubbard produced more than 250 published works of fiction in his writing career. Yet it was from the Golden Age of Science Fiction (1938-1950), in which he played such an instrumental part, that he fondly remembered that the illustrators of those stories were as important to the readers as were the writers. Thus, by its design and since its inception, the L. Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest winners, three each quarter, illustrate a winning story from the Writers of the Future Contest. These rendered illustrations are not only entered in the Grand Prize competition, but are published in the L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future anthology with their respective companion story.

    All themes of science fiction and fantasy illustrations are welcome: every entry is judged on its own merits only. No entry fee is required and all rights in the entry remain the property of the artist.

    Please visit the L. Ron Hubbbard website for more information. No deadline date.

    This year’s project challenge looks to redesign and launch a new mid‐  to high‐end, sustainably conscious and technology savvy prototype. Our objective is to design, develop a new prototype design in a new location to be completed in the winter of 2015.  The store is anticipated to be 3,000 square feet (300 meter squared) and will either be ground‐up construction or a retrofit of an existing tenant location.  The intent is to align the store environment with the core customer and the current brand positioning, not to totally re‐image Jewelry Co., Inc.,   but to improve the effectiveness of the design in conveying the brand to the guest while correcting operational and merchandising needs within the store.

    Our goal is to award creative thinking, to help your professors teach you a real-world holistic design process, and to introduce students to the exciting and dynamic career of retail design.
