    If only that Marco Polo painting was fantasy, I could polish it up and add some stuff and viola! But alas.

    Good luck to all enterants!

    If I remember correctly, all works have to be created in 2006, so the deadline for creating works has alredy gone by - yes? Or is it not as hard and fast as that.

    Polish it up and send it anyway. It's a nice piece.

    Since we've already established that it's not historically accurate, I'd say it qualifies .
    Seriously, the Spectrum definition of "fantastic art" is pretty elastic.

    well, technically, but the deadline for entries is the end of the month. You're probably ok just so long as you don't send it in next year too.

    Yeah, more like "genre illustration" really. They frequently have historical stuff, pulp-type stuff... it's pretty loose.

    Rally cry folks! Last year was pretty CA heavy, lets take it even further! LET ME SEE YOUR WAR FACE!

    This is the first time I haven't had to scramble to get something ready, got all my pieces lined up, just have to get nice prints made and mail em out. Maybe I'll even get in this time... If I'm lucky... and I bribe the judges... and hell-freezes over...

    Question

    thanks for the reminder

    Oh, by the way, sorry to be a bit out of subject (but I don't think it's worth a new thread), does anybody know if the Society of Illustrator will make an official announcement of the artists that are included in their 49th annual, like Spectrum use to do ?
    I already asked them several times, but never got any answer...

    good luck and good year !

    I'm going to give it a go as well.
    I'd be super happy if I made it.

    Dave P - Thanks! I'll answer that rallying cry after all, I guess. I've got a rough I think I can flesh out in time. Cheers!

    they already have.
    the society has sent out both acceptance and rejection letters already.
    though, it may take a bit to reach over seas.
