A New (Monthly!) Opportunity For Illustrators

What will YOU draw?

Are you ready to BOUNCE?

(And that's only this month's prompt!)

Here's the news...

Calling All Illustrators!

We are excited to announce a great new feature for our illustrator members, Draw This!: a monthly art prompt that will be part of the new SCBWI Insider. Members will have the opportunity each month to show their artwork in the online gallery and two pieces will be featured in the email itself. The online gallery will be open to public viewing, so agents, art directors and editors have yet another way of finding our illustrators.

The June 2015 Draw This! prompt word is: Bounce 

Deadline for the June Draw This! is May 25

Tweet, Facebook and Instagram your submissions! Tag your art #scbwidrawthis

The Draw This! guidelines are different from our Bulletin art submission guidelines, so please read carefully.

 •You must be a current SCBWI member to submit to Draw This!
•Artwork must be inspired by the prompt word in some way
•Art may be black & white, grayscale or RGB color
•File resolution must be 72 dpi
•Jpegs only
•No image dimensions larger than 8.5 x 11 (or 11 x 8.5)
•Vignettes, line art and full bleed art are welcome
•File must be titled as follows: Prompt word_First name_Last name.jpg (Bounce_Sarah_Baker.jpg)
•Each member may only submit one entry per prompt word
•Put "Prompt word Draw This" in the subject line
•Email your file as an attachment, NOT in the body of the email, to: scbwidrawthis@scbwi.org

**Failure to follow these guidelines will result in exclusion from the online gallery. For questions, write to scbwidrawthis@scbwi.org.

Good luck, and Illustrate On!
