The NSS 2015 International Student Art Contest

Arcturus Space Settlement
2014 Grand Prize Winner:
Arcturus Space Settlement by Bogdan Alexandru Cionca

The National Space Society is hosting the 2015 Roadmap to Space Settlement International Student Art Contest for students aged 13-25. We are looking for original, photo-realistic illustrations of daily life in a space settlement located anywhere in our solar system. This is a wonderful opportunity for students to visualize their ideas of what humanity’s future in space may look like.

The contest’s Grand Prize winner will receive a number of prizes including:

  • Publication on the cover of the National Space Society magazine Ad Astra
  • An award certificate at the annual International Space Development Conference and complimentary registration to the 2015 International Space Development Conference in Toronto, Canada
  • One year complimentary membership in the National Space Society, including a subscription to Ad Astra magazine
  • Five complimentary copies of the Ad Astra magazine the art work is featured on

Additional prizes will be awarded to the First Prize and Honorable Mention winners in the contest.

Submissions are due by March 16th. For complete contest details, see 2015 Roadmap to Space Settlement International Student Art Contest
