Announcing the Spectrum 21 Award Nominees
The Spectrum 21 jury has nominated the top five artist works in each of the eight categories for a silver and gold award. The winners will be announced at the Spectrum Fantastic Art Live event in Kansas City, MO on May 10th. Congratulations to all of the artists who have been considered! The full list of artist names and the artwork can be viewed here.
Spectrum 21 Judging Event
The Spectrum 21 jury will convene in San Jose, California on March 1st.
The call for entries submissions will be reviewed and voted upon over the course of the day. Each judge votes independently and anonymously allowing for a fair process. A simple majority of three out of five votes will guarantee a work of art for inclusion in Spectrum 21. Those whose works are selected will be announced by April 1st.
The Gold and Silver award recipients for each category will also be determined with the top five pieces being announced soon after the judging event. The recipients will be revealed at the live awards ceremony held on May 10 at the Midland Theatre in Kansas City. Admission is free to all Spectrum Fantastic Art Live three-day ticket holders and exhibitors, which runs from May 9-11.
Watch the Spectrum Fantastic Art website on March 1st for photographs and video throughout the Spectrum 21 judging event day. Expanded videos, more photographs and news about the day will be shared throughout the following week.
Spectrum 21 Call for Entries Submission Update
We continue to be energetic as we process the Spectrum 21 call for entries submissions! We expect to be done in one more week. Given the large variety of images available for jury consideration it’s apparent that the 21st annual book will be an incredible one. As always, we do not pre-screen any art. We make sure every piece submitted gets an equal opportunity to be viewed. The judging will be held in San Jose, California on the first Saturday of March. Helpful Bear Productions will be joining us to post pictures and videos on our Spectrum website throughout that day! We would like to take another opportunity to thank everyone who submitted!
