The NCS North Central Chapter will conduct it's 2008 divisional Reuben judging for the "Book Illustration" category in two separate get-togethers in the next few weeks. We have received a fair number of entries already with two days to go before the deadline. No doubt there will be a flood of last minute entries, as we all know how prompt and ahead of schedule cartoonists are...
Judging meeting 1: Held at my house, Saturday March 1st starting at 1:00 pm. Refreshments will be served. All current members of the NCC are welcome to attend and participate in the judging. Please e-mail me for more details and for directions.
Judging meeting 2: Held in Kansas City area, date, time and location TBA.
The details and procedures of the judging will be explained at the individual meetings. The KC results will be sent to me and combined with the earlier meeting's results to give us the final verdict of the chapter. Then the top four finalists and their books will be sent to the NCS national rep for ratification and it will all be official.
Please contact me ASAP if you will be attending here in Burnsville for the first meeting. If you can find way to attend please do... this is one of the most important functions a chapter has with respect to the NCS and our profession as a whole. I hope to see a good turn out....
