SO… did you enter Lilla Rogers’ Global Talent Search? Those who did have been anxiously awaiting this day – August 1st – the day the Top 50 will be revealed on Lilla’s blog!
I have to say I have throughly enjoyed watching this process unfold. They have done a great job not only creating anticipation but also giving artists an idea of what
the process of art licensing or creating art to parameters is like. I imagine some loved the challenge and others found it a little more challenging than they expected. I know I’ve read a lot online about artists wanting to win the big prize – being represented by Lilla Rogers Studios – but also proud that they went through the process and happy with what they have learned.
A friend forwarded a link to Julie Hamilton’s blog – Artistically Afflicted – post about the contest.
Julie has written two posts about the search –
I loved reading her insights and perspectives and especially loved a sneak-peek at some of the entries. (To enter you had to create a journal cover and it had certain elements that were to be included – the variety of entries and creativity is awesome! I must admit I’m glad I’m not a judge and don’t have to decide who makes the top 50.
Did you enter? If so, let us know how you felt about the process and of course – if you made it into the top 50!
To me this is not only a great learning experience for artists but also, on the part of Lilla Rogers Studios, a pretty cool and unique way to teach, inspire and find their next artist. I keep saying “It’s like American Idol for art!”

Here’s to your creative success!
