ICONIC HOLIDAY HEN CONTEST 2016

hen-ink

The Iconic Holiday Hen is a contest for illustrators, which is so rare! If you are an illustrator and would like to submit your Iconic Holiday Hen illustration to be used as the Hen & ink Holiday Mascot, please send submissions between November 12th and November 15th, 2016. (Go to their website for instructions.)

Per the website, the chosen Hen will spread holiday cheer throughout the publishing world (with the artist’s name intact!) and its creator will be invited to her/his very own Open Coop Iconic Hen Day (i.e., he/she will be invited to present a portfolio or a project for our consideration). What an amazing opportunity for illustrators!

As always, good luck!
