Adorama has debuted the next Create No Matter What Challenge theme: Hope, an illustration contest. Revealed by artist Emily Chow aka Celtis, the illustration challenge asks entrants to draw and submit a scene that encapsulates hope, and what that means to them. One participant will be selected to win a Wacom Cintiq Pro prize package worth more than $3,000, with three runners-up receiving a Wacom Cintiq Pro.

“The third Create No Matter What challenge is all about illustration,” said Mary-Irene Marek, Director of Content and Social Media for Adorama. “There is no limit on what you can create and how you want to express yourself during the entire creative process. There are endless ways for you to share a piece of yourself with the world, and we can’t wait to see what you create around the theme of hope.”
