PASADENA, Calif., Aug. 27 -- Over 300 fans, along with two-time Emmy nominated actress Lee Purcell (Due South, Valley Girl) and Latina singer/songwriter Carina Rico, attended the 23rd L. Ron Hubbard Achievement Awards ceremony this past weekend at the Athenaeum situated at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena to honor the 24 winners of the international Writers and Illustrators of the Future Contests and cheer the release of Writers of the Future Volume 23, the book featuring their first professional sale.

Each writing and illustrating contest winner was presented their trophy by contest judges at the ceremony. The Gold Award to the author of the Story of the Year was presented by actress Lee Purcell to Steven Kotowych from Toronto, Ontario, for his story "Saturn in G Minor". The Gold Award for the Illustrator of the Year was presented to Lorraine Schleter from Fort Branch, Indiana by Latin vocalist Carina Rico.

Prior to the awards ceremony, the winners were flown in from as far away as France, United Kingdom and Ukraine to attend a week long workshop taught by contest judges-including New York Times bestselling authors Kevin J. Anderson (Dune series), Tim Powers (Three Days to Never), Sean Williams (The Resurrected Man) and internationally acclaimed artist, Stephen Hickman -- each one an experienced professional in the field providing sound advice based on hard-won experience. |GlobalGiants.com|
