Spectrum 23
The Spectrum 23 Call for Entries opens on October 19, 2015. 
This is an invitation to all professional and student artists, art directors, publishers and artist representatives to submit entries to the 23rd Annual Spectrum International Competition for Fantastic Art.
All art works in all mediums embracing the themes of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and the surreal are eligible for this show. Fantastic Art can be subtle or obvious, traditional or off-the-wall, painted, sculpted, done digitally or photographed: there is no unacceptable way to create art and there are no set rules that say one piece qualifies while another does not. Imagination and skill are what matters. Work chosen by the jury will be printed in full color in the Spectrum annual, the peer-selected "best of the year" collection for the fantastic arts.

Eligibility
Any published or unpublished art may be submitted in the appropriate category. Work must have been finished or first published in 2015.

Submission Technical Guidelines
Give your work a fair chance at being selected for inclusion in the book. Try to submit the best-quality representation of your art possible. No, don't spend an arm and a leg on color-corrected prints, but DO make sure the submission is in focus, isn't the size of a postage stamp and doesn't look like it was photographed in the fog.

Entries are NOT prescreened: ALL entries will be reviewed by the jury.

Submission Guidelines >>

Spectrum Twenty-Third Annual Book
