If you haven't heard, the Stormlight Archive subreddit is holding a contest in celebration of the release of Oathbringer! In honor of Dalinar's book, the theme of the contest is UNITE THEM! Anyone is welcome to participate, and there are some fantastic prizes up for grabs. There will be two grand prizes. The first, a numbered first edition hardcover of Oathbringer, will be awarded to the entrant who receives the highest popular vote. These books are only available at the release party and are not easy to come by! It will be signed by Brandon and any other members of Team Dragonsteel who are available. The second grand prize is a print of the cover of Oathbringer signed by Brandon and (potentially) Michael Whelan. The winner of this prize will be selected by the subreddit's moderation team. In addition to the grand prizes, there are a number of other prizes available. Four runners up will receive Stormlight Archive pendants, donated by Bedali Jewelry. Lastly, ten honorable mentions will receive small prizes, such as a Syl sticker or a signed bookplate. So how can you win one of these awesome prizes? Participants may submit any type of creative work that they've made for the purposes of the contest. There are two main rules: you have to explain how your creation exemplifies the theme of the contest (Unite them!), and it has to be related to the Stormlight Archive. This could be anything from Bridge 4 fanart, to a video of a dance you've performed, to a Stormlight-themed computer game. Think out of the box! Look for the "submit your entry" thread on October 1st in /r/Stormlight_Archive. Post your creation there along with an explanation of how it exemplifies the contest theme. You'll need a Reddit account if you don't have one, but they're very easy to set up. To see the full rules or ask any questions, see the contest announcement thread. If you're not interested in making an entry, you are still invited to participate! Look for the entry thread the week of October 1st and vote for your favorite entries. Voting ends on October 7th.
I've decided to run an Aon drawing contest. To enter, simply post a reply containing an image of your hand-drawn Aon. Bonus points will be awarded for combinations of Aons. Chasm lines not required. I'm accepting entries until Tuesday, February 10, so start drawing now, amateur Elantrians! (Also, PM me if you'd like to help judge. Judges cannot enter.)
This is from the part of the prologue (is that how to spell it?) where David ran away only to be spared of Faultline's destructo-whatnots. I don't expect to win, but I said I'd do this so I did. Just paper, pencil, and a little gimp to touch up. Good luck to the winners! I might finish it up (color and stuff) later, but WAY after this contest is over.

Fanart based on the prologue of Steelheart. Done in Photoshop and SAI. In the story, Steelheart bursts into the bank, and starts threatening the other Epic, Deathpoint. I liked the dramatic image presented by Steelheart's statuesque frame intimidating the much-smaller Deathpoint. When the viewpoint character, David, describes Deathpoint's sunglasses clattering to the floor, I knew I wanted to try to capture that tension by framing the image in the reflection of the lenses as they lay in a pile of one of the victim's ashes.
