Here There Be Monsters Con Message Board › Here There Be Monsters Con: Monster Spawn Contest
This is Zane with a very important contest announcement! Last year, we started our Monster Spawn program: one talented youngster gets a free artists' booth, a chance to make contacts with professional artists, and have a risk-free (aka cost free) opportunity to showcase and hopefully sell their work. Last year, Robby Cairns was awarded the position and had a very successful show! Now we are looking for this year's upcoming talent so that we can give them a little helping hand. If you know of any talented young artists, please make sure that they see the entry rules below. C'mon y'all, let's do what we can to help starving young artists and create a few more whimsy enthusiasts! Nerd is bond!
