My best-contest-ever award goes to Nicole Peterson’s “The Alien and the Kitty” contest, being held now in memeory of her cat. The contest is titled "Nepenthe," the one who chases away sorrow. Contest entries will be artworks including her cat and the creature from Alien interacting to illustrate the theme. Such a cool idea! Contest deadline is October 31.
Pretty cool prizes, too. Contest rules and details here.
