YALLWEST Student Fan Art Contest

Welcome to YALLWEST’s first ever fan art contest! We’ve been so blown away by the talent we’ve seen in our Teen Writing Contest that we wanted to see what the artists in the group can do! We got so excited, in fact, that we couldn’t pick just one theme. So we have two themes, which means two chances to win! 

Here’s the info:

 
  • There are two themes this year: 

    • SPACE

    • HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION

  • This is a FAN ART contest, which means submissions must be inspired by a work by an author or StoryMaker who is attending this year’s festival. A full list can be found here: yallwest.com/lineup

  • You can submit two art pieces in total, one per theme

  • You must be a student to enter the contest.

  • All submissions should be sent to fanartcontest@yallwest.com. If you create something in traditional, not digital, media, send a scan or high quality photograph.

  • When you submit, include the following in your email: your name, grade, the name of the book that inspired your piece and the names of any characters depicted. Please also include how we should credit you if your art is shared online.

  • Winners will receive a print of their submissions signed by the creator that inspired the work, a BLICK Gift Card, and an honorary diploma from YALLWEST HIGH signed by bestselling authors!

  • Art must be submitted before 11:59pm on May 1st. 

Here's an example submission from the one of our incredibly talented Teen Ambassadors Clara!
