Portfolio Review Scholarship Submissions

Hi All,
The Liz Conrad Portfolio Critique Scholarship Fund has received so
many donations, we will be offering scholarships for many years to
come. Thanks to everybody for your generosity!

The first two scholarships will be awarded for Springmingle 2010 (Feb.
26-28) to two current SCBWI Southern Breeze members living in
Mississippi, Alabama or Georgia. If you would like to apply for a
scholarship for a free Portfolio Critique at this year's Springmingle
conference please go to http://dulemba.com/SouthernBreeze/LizConradFund.html to download the registration form. Applications will be accepted
between January 1st and January 22nd. The scholarships will be awarded
on February 5th. If you have any questions, please feel free to email

The Portfolio Critiques meant so much to Liz, she would have loved to
know she was helping other budding illustrators on their journey into
the children's book market.
