    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.

    International Student Design Competition - Outside Scholarship

    Deadline: May 9, 2014

    On behalf of the Student Design Competition Committee, we are pleased to announce the 2014 International Student Store Design Competition. We think this year’s Request for Proposal (RFP) format for the competition will give you a better understanding of the parameters that retail designers must work within when presenting a concept to a client. It includes the many challenges that designers and Beauty Retailers face when trying to create a new brand and bring it to life at the store level.

    We hope the chosen category; “Beauty Co., Inc.” will be of interest to you. With global yearly sales totaling over $420 billion annually, the prestige cosmetics market is its fasting growing sector. Many beauty retailers have been redesigning their current store design, introducing new brands and/or expending into new markets. The struggles of the past recession have depressed consumer discretionary spending, but women consumers look to the cosmetics offerings as a way to impact their fashions and they way they feel about themselves without spending hundreds on a new wardrobe. Historically, during a recession, lipstick sales skyrocket as a direct effect. In order to take advantage of this market, Beauty Retailers have been looking for creative and ownable solutions to build loyalty and increase total sales by developing new product lines, loyalty programs, social marketing strategies, and introducing new omni‐channel sales technologies.

    This year’s project challenge looks to develop and globally launch a new prestige, wellness conscious and organically sourced cosmetic and beauty brand. The first test will be to develop a prototypical urban store that will be market tested for a yet to be determined ‘high‐street’ location in London, New York and Tokyo. The new brand concept will be tested for consumer segment and product sales, design effectiveness, technology integration, cost controls and operations. The 1‐level space is nearly 120 square meters (1200 square feet) and the process for designing the customer experience will need to include concepts for the selling area and storefront.

    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.

    For more information on this competition, please visit the Retail Design Institute website.
