Arisia 2011 will once again feature a Science Fiction art contest open to high school students.
This is a free contest, open to all secondary school students. Cash prizes ($800 total) will be awarded for the best science fiction or fantasy-themed artwork. There are no entry or exhibition fees, and no "gotcha"s. We simply wish to recognize, celebrate and encourage outstanding student art. Students who wish can also choose to put their art up for sale.
For 2011, the convention theme is Mad Science. Students are free to submit entries using either the convention theme or any other Science Fiction or Fantasy theme for inspiration.
The deadline for entries is December 27, 2010.
