From simple models used in tabletop strategy and role-playing games, the painting of miniatures has developed into an art form.  The hobby features a dizzying array of tools, techniques, and personalities.  CoolMiniOrNot, along with its convention host, AdeptiCon, are making the Crystal Brush Awards a global arena for the world’s best miniature artists to display their talent.

The top three highest scorers in each of the 7 standard categories will receive a Crystal Brush trophy.  Each trophy is made of cut lead crystal and tipped with the appropriate place color (gold, silver, or bronze). Gold winners in each category will also receive a cash prize of $200.

The top three overall winners will each receive a cash prize of $10,000, $2,000, and $1,000 respectively.  These are the most valuable awards in the miniature painting world today!

The seventh annual Crystal Brush Awards will run from March 23 to March 26 at AdeptiCon 2017 in Chicago.  Venue details are available here: http://adepticon.org.
