NSS Space Settlement Calendar Art Contest

The National Space Society (NSS) is looking for artists to create visions of a spacefaring future — a future of space settlement, be it on the Moon, on Mars, on asteroids, or orbiting independently in space. To bring attention to our goal of creating a spacefaring future, NSS is sponsoring a contest for such artwork to be used in a calendar promoting a future of humans living and working in space. The best of the submitted artwork will be selected for inclusion in the 2008 NSS Space Settlement Calendar. Judges include world-renowned space artists David A. Hardy and Pat Rawlings.

The NSS Space Settlement Art Contest will run until January 31, 2007.
