Arisia is the largest and most diverse volunteer-run science fiction convention in New England. Now in its 29th year, Arisia will be held January 12-15, 2018 in the Westin Waterfront Hotel in Boston, Massachusetts. Among other activities at the convention (panel discussions, demonstrations, storytelling, costume events, games, movies, etc.), we have a first-class Art Show, showcasing more than 80 of the finest professional and amateur science fiction and fantasy artists and illustrators in New England and the surrounding areas. Some of these artists will participate in the final judging of the Student Art Contest. Arisia is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation; its purpose is to further the enjoyment and appreciation of science fiction and fantasy, and to bring together the fan community. We believe it is essential to involve and motivate the next generation of artists and fans; this art contest is an important part of that mission.
We accept digital submissions sent to @email with attached images. Please see the form below for guidelines and instructions. Previous Arisia Student Art Contest winners can be seen on the Arisia Corporate site.
