Contest Brief

I’m a three-time award winning author from the US, in non-fiction, fiction and children’s books. I’m hoping to publish 2 or 3 children’s books this year. The winners and runners up to this contest will be the front runners to publish the entire book(s).

I’m looking for an illustrator with a magical touch with color and light, who is talented, creative, and original. For ideas on style and theme, visit my website at: [login to view URL]

Also, keep in mind that if you do not win the contest, I may still hire you. Hiring someone will be based on talent, how much your bid for the job will run, availability, references, work history, and how easy you are to work with. These are children's books, designed to uplift and inspire the small ones. I want to work with someone who loves what they do so much, that it really shows in their work.

Please read the directions on the attached file Thanks for entering and good luck!

    Good day~
    The excerpts from your book sound so magical!
    I'd like to ask if you have any pegs when it comes to the clothing of the characters in Sample One - Two Hearts of Gold? Like would you like it somewhat medieval fantasy, modern fantasy, or anything goes?

    Thank you so much!

    Art will be on both sides, with text starting on the left. Please take a look at the 'Sample 1' file and the bottom of the 'Directions for Illustrators' file.

    Just a clarification, will you want artwork on both sides with the writting? Such as pages 2 and 3 are one huge piece of art work illistrating what is written?
