19 Jun ICON8 Call for Submissions
ICON8, the Illustration Conference taking place in July 2014 has issued a call for papers and presentations from academics and professional illustrators. The conference organizers will be conducting an Educating Illustrators in the 21st Century Symposium, and are soliciting entries which “address the myriad changes in the methods of teaching, creating, and delivering illustration now and in the coming decades”. Organizers have proposed a number of topics, including leveraging digital technology, the evolution of 3D, interactive, and motion-based illustration, and the death of the classroom. Any topics which explore how the practice of illustration is changing are welcome for review.
Initial submissions of abstracts of 500 words are due for peer review on July 15. Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. A notice of acceptance will be sent on August 23. Accepted papers should be 3,000 – 5,000 words including bibliography.
