Comic-Con International have updated their submission information for this years Art Show, to be held as usual in the Sails Pavilion of the San Diego Convention Center as part of San Diego Comic-Con (to be held this summer, 20th-23rd July 2017).
The Art Show has been one of the high-profile creative showcases of SDCC since its inception, featuring artwork in a curated gallery space from not only seasoned professionals but talented amateurs – understandably, getting a spot in the Show is quite the big deal. CCI has now opened up for 2017 applications and, if you’re intending to submit a piece, you can find out all the information on the official website, as well as downloading the Entry Form and Rules, here.
If you’re chosen, you’ll be finding your work hung on display alongside established comics pros, Eisner Award Nominated artists and, frankly, the best creative talent in the world. No pressure, then. Best of luck!
