Sarah Webb of Fairbanks, Alaska Wins L. Ron Hubbard's International Illustrators of the Future Contest
Sarah Webb of Fairbanks, Alaska will be honored at the 30th Annual L. Ron Hubbard Achievement awards being held 13 April 2013 in Los Angeles. The event will celebrate the twenty-four annual winners in the international L. Ron Hubbard Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests, where Sarah will be one of the twelve illustrator winners. Her art will also be published in the bestselling Science Fiction/Fantasy anthology series - L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future Volume XXX. She has already won $500.00 prize money for the win.
She will now compete with the remaining 11 winners from around the world for the grand prize of an additional $5,000.00.
In May of this year, Sarah won the Digital Art Congressional Award while a student at West Valley High School in the all-state High School Art Competition.
With the L. Ron Hubbard award, Sarah will be flown to Hollywood to participate in a week long workshop taught by the blue ribbon panel of contest judges lead by Cliff Nielsen (Chronicles of Narnia artwork), followed by the gala awards ceremony at the end of the week.
Other judges and mentors attending during the week are Stephan Martiniere (The Fifth Element concept art), Dave Dorman (Star Wars art), Stephen Hickman (internationally commissioned artist), and Larry Elmore (Dungeons & Dragons) just to name a few.
The Contests were initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 shortly after returning to the field of science fiction with his bestseller Battlefield Earth.
