Norwescon Art Show Now Accepting Applications
The Norwescon 39 art show is now accepting applications from artists. We would love to hear from you! Headlined by our artist guest of Honor, Janny Wurts, this promises to be another exciting year.
The Norwescon 39 art show's goal is to feature well- known and successful artists, while supplying a venue for up-and-coming artists to provide exposure and help build successful careers.
We would like you to be part of our community. Please go to www.norwescon.org/exhibitors/art-show for more information on how you can sign up with the Norwescon 39 art show.
Don't forget to book your room before the hotel fills up! Con rate rooms and certain room types are limited. We are already sold out of Wednesday and Sunday night rooms at the con rate. You are still able to include Wednesday and/or Sunday night in your reservation, but it will default to the hotel's normal rate for that day. If you click on "rate details" before finalizing your reservation, it will show the rate for each night you have reserved. Thursday through Saturday night rooms at the con rate are still available!
The Norwescon 39 hotel liaison began accepting reservation requests for suites and family rooms starting at noon on October 12th, 2015. For more information about the process, and for rules on having a party, please review our webpage at www.norwescon/org/con/hotel.
Congratulations to Julie Dillon
A hearty congratulations to last year's artist guest of honor, Julie Dillon, for her recent recognition in the Hugo and Chesley awards. Presented at the World Science Fiction Convention this last August in Spokane, she won the following awards:
- 2015 Hugo Award for best professional artist
- 2015 Chesley Award for best cover illustration - magazine
- 2015 Chesley Award for best cover illustration - hardcover
Those of you who attended last year and got to see the artwork of our former Artist Guest of Honor know just how talented she is!
