    Award Winners
    SPECTRUM 14

    The jury for the fourteenth annual Spectrum competition convened in Kansas City, MO on the weekend February 23, 2007 to make their selections from over 5000 works of fantastic-themed art for this year's book. A new category— Concept Art— was added this year. The jury has given special recognition for superior achievement to the following artists in each of eight categories. The artists receive a Spectrum Award sculpted by Joseph DeVito which rests on a base sculpted by Tom Banwell with either a gold or silver engraved plate bearing the recipient’s name. The jury consisted of Mark Chiarello [artist/editor & art director for DC Comics], Dan dos Santos [artist], Marc Gabbana [artist/concept artist Ice Blink Studio], Brandon Ragnar Johnson [artist/concept artist], Dawn Murin [art director for Dungeons & Dragons/Wizards of the Coast], and Adam Rex [artist]. Art works created by jurors or created under their direction were excluded from consideration for awards. All of the art selected by the judges will be included in Spectrum 14: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art to be published by Underwood Books of Nevada City, CA in October, 2007. Spectrum is distributed to the trade by Perseus, Ingram, Baker & Taylor, and Diamond Comic Distributors. The series' editors are Cathy and Arnie Fenner. Please join us in applauding these exceptional talents!

    if you're wondering if you got in, (like me) try to be patient...
    i checked the entry form which says:

    "Only entrants whose works are selected by the jury for inclusion in the annual will be notified by mail in April, 2007 with additional information. A list of of accepted entrants will also be posted on the Spectrum website: www.spectrumfantasticart.com We will not be notifying entrants that did not have work selected: plan to check the website to see if your name is on the list."

    Aly, thanks for giving me a phonecall and pointing me in this direction! I got straight off my rowing machine, missed the end of the MAn Utd vs Reading match, checked conceptart, jumped around excitedly and cracked open a bottle of ale! (If i'm still fat when i get married in May it's all your fault)

    I can't tell you how excited i am, that news has made my year!

    (and ChEERs Rob and Sve!)

    I’m told that the list of everyone who got in might be up in 2-4 weeks. Mind you, while I have inside information I am not the official voice of Spectrum -- take what I say as a general guideline. Spectrum is Herculean effort made by two people each and every year, Arnie and Cathy Fenner. Yay to them for making our lives a little more colorful!

    And here is the handsome Jury:

    Spectrum Awards!
