Print Magazine's April 2012 Issue is the New Visual Artists issue! For the last 14 years, Print has featured an annual issue called the New Visual Artists Review, which introduces and profiles 20 of the most promising rising talents in graphic design, advertising, illustration, digital media, photography, and animation—all under the age of 30. This competition is invitation-only: Our choices are drawn from nominations made by art directors, designers, critics, and industry professionals. The issue offers much-deserved exposure each year to 20 young artists doing innovative work.
In Print Magazine's April 2012 Issue You'll Find:

The winners of the competition are published annually in our April issue. If you are an art director or design professional and would like to nominate someone for next year's competition, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject heading, "New Visual Artist Nomination." We accept nominations through the end of August. Designers who turn 30 before March 1, 2011 cannot be accepted. Judging takes place in October, and winners are notified in November.
