“Wonders of the Future” WondLa Giveaway!

March 23, 2012

As many of you know, the second installment of The Search for WondLa trilogy is about to hit shelves in May, but here is your chance to read the book and see the art before everybody else – announcing the “Wonders of the Future” Wondla Giveaway Contest!

The contest is simple: What is your vision of the future?

My vision of Eva Nine’s futuristic world contains many artifacts that are still daydreams in our real world – Hovercars, robots and holography are an integral part of her day-to-day life. So what do you think our future holds?

Here is what I am looking for:

1. A full color image of your vision of the future rendered in any medium you like (including sculptures or even animation). This vision of yours can be an item that has yet to be invented, an undiscovered creature, a new form of transportation…if you think it will (or should) exist tomorrow, then I want to see it!

2. A quick (4-5 lines) description of what your vision is and how it may impact our lives.

What I really want you to do is USE YOUR IMAGINATION.

“Wah! I’m not a good artist!” you say. That doesn’t matter.

I will be judging on originality, innovation, and creativity. It doesn’t matter if you are a good drawer or not. It doesn’t matter if you are a two-year old kid, or an eighty two-year old kid…all entries will be accepted.

And those entries have to be in front of my bespectacled eyes by APRIL 20th, 2012

You can send them to me at:
*Please title your email “Wonders of the Future Contest Entry” and include your name, age and jpeg file of your entry.

Once you enter, you’ll receive a link and password that will allow you to sneak a peek at a secret online gallery displaying the art for A Hero for Wondla! Yes, you read that right. It’s right here on this very site! Hidden away from prying eyes except for those who enter…

The winning entry will be sent a signed Advanced Reader’s Copy of A Hero for WondLa, a signed copy of the limited “Hunger Games Edition” of The Search for WondLa (given away at select theaters at the opening of The Hunger Games film), a signed limited edition sketchbook as well as a signed and numbered limited edition print!

Winners will be chosen by myself, my loverly wife Angela, and my trusty assistant Ashley. We will announce and post the winning entry on my site April 23, 2012 and I will FedEx your winning package to you that day!

…sound cool? Then get drawing and GOOD LUCK!

PS – with apologies to all my international fans, this contest is for US residents only.

Never Abandon Imagination Tony DiTerlizzi: Never abandon imagination.

Imagination is a world of possibility that exists within each of us. It is what makes us uniquely human. It is our creative fingerprint that touches and influences the world around us. Imagination is essential to art and science; to innovation and prosperity. It gives us hope, calls us to action and leads to change.

Whether it’s fairies, dragons, robots or aliens, all of my children’s book characters are siblings born of my imagination – an imagination strengthened through years of encouragement from family, teachers and friends. While so many others abandoned it during their transition from childhood to adulthood, I fiercely held onto mine, hoping for a day when I could share it to inspire the next generation of dreamers. Innovators. World changers.

Imagination empowers us to envision and create a reality of what could be. We must hold it dear, foster it and never abandon it.
