(NAPSI)—Fame and fortune may await writers and artists who enter annual contests for those focused on the future.


The Contests


Popular science fiction author L. Ron Hubbard created the Writers of the Future Contest in 1983 for aspiring writers of speculative fiction. The award is considered the genre’s most prestigious and the largest, most successful and demonstrably most influential vehicle for budding creative talent in speculative fiction. Its success inspired the companion Illustrators of the Future Contest, created in 1988. 


The Winners


The annual contests draw entrants from around the globe and are free to enter. Winners retain full rights to their work and each gets a cash award and a trip to Los Angeles for a free, week-long workshop with professional writers and a black tie gala awards event.

The 2020 and 2021 winners include:


•C. Winspear, from Blacktown, NSW, Australia, Grand Prize Winner of the 36th Annual Writers of the Future Contest.

•Anh Le, originally from Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, was Grand Prize Winner of the 31st Annual Illustrators of the Future Contest.

•Barbara Lund, from Draper, UT, was named Grand Prize Winner of the 37th Annual Writers of the Future Contest.

•Dan Watson, from Earley, Reading, Berkshire, UK, was the Grand Prize Winner of the 32nd Annual Illustrators of the Future Contest.


The 428 past winners of the Writing Contest have published 1,150 novels and nearly 4,500 short stories. They have produced 33 New York Times bestsellers and their works have sold over 60 million copies.


The 358 winners of the Illustrating Contest have produced over 6,000 illustrations, 360 comic books, graced 624 books and albums with their art and visually contributed to 68 television shows and 40 major movies.
