The 2012 SCBWI Conference is going to start in full party mode with a huge showcase of the work of more than 40 illustrators who have submitted their portfolios from all over Australia and New Zealand.
Here we feature three of the illustrators and their works: Girl in swing - Alison Mutton / Tree house - Laura Wood / Girl Feeding ducks - Barbara Nye.
You can have a sneak peek at everyone who's exhibiting on the showcase website: http://www.scbwiausnz.squarespace.com
We're really excited about the showcase - it's such a huge event at the SCBWI NY and LA conferences, but this is the first time we've tried something similar in good old Sydney, so we're hoping it's a big success and lots of fun for everyone who's attending or taking part.
We'd love to hear what you think of the idea... Please do leave us a comment below.
