This year, Capricon is pleased to announce a new section of its annual art show specifically featuring ’emerging artists’ who work in the science fiction, fantasy, & speculative fiction genres. Open to all art students, this is an opportunity to exhibit work beside that of established artists and sell to a wide audience of writers, editors, art directors, and fans.
All undergraduate students currently enrolled in universities, colleges, high schools, and other art courses & programs, are welcome to submit their work for inclusion in the Emerging Artists Program (EAP). Attendance at the convention is not mandatory, though it is welcomed.
General art show policies (available at http://capricon.org/capricon34/Cap34ArtPolicies.pdf) apply to those who participate in the EAP, except for the following:
– Hanging fees will be waived for those in this section of the art show, but the commission percentage still applies.
– Artists in the EAP will be grouped together in their own section at the front of the art show; they will not be eligible for any of the general art show awards but will have their own award, as voted on by convention attendees.
Additional information is available at http://capricon.org/capricon34/Capricon34EAP.pdf.
