    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.

    Aspiring filmmakers, this is your chance to go on assignment to capture Colombia!

    This South American stunner’s doors are now open, and we believe that it has more than a few stories to tell. In our 2015 Travel Film Scholarship, we’re looking for one adventurous documentary filmmaker to capture the culture and the communities of Colombia’s Pacific Coast.

    Boasting more than its fair share of white-sand beaches, lush jungles and cloud forested mountain ranges, Colombia is a filmmaker’s dream. However, it’s beauty is matched by history, culture and people no less interesting or colourful.

    Your job will be to document the story of a Pacific community nestled in one of the world's biodiversity hotspots. This undiscovered paradise is just opening itself up to travellers and is chock full of some of the country’s best wildlife and adventure experiences. This is your opportunity to document how the community lives and how they are working to promote tourism to the region.

    For the first week of your assignment you’ll be mentored by a professional filmmaker Brian Rapsey to hone your technical skills and storytelling abilities. Then, you’ll spend three days in Bogota in a post-production workshop where you’ll work to craft your footage into an awesome 5-7 minute travel documentary.

  • The Prizes
    • A 10-day all-expenses-paid trip in Colombia
    • Round-trip airfare from your country of residence to Bogotá, Colombia
    • 10-day professional mentorship from Brian Rapsey
    • Travel insurance for the duration of the trip from World Nomads

    To apply, submit a 3-minute documentary that profiles someone who inspires you to travel the world and tell us why you’re the right person for the job.
