Amateur World of Warcraft artists will soon get their moment in the sun. At New York Comic Con, UDON revealed that they're partnering with Blizzard for a World of Warcraft Tribute artbook that shows off the best fan creations.

Fans can submit their original WoW-inspired artwork starting on November 1st. Submissions will be accepted until January 15th, 2013. Submission details and rules will be posted on this website soon.

"We’ve always been humbled by the fact that some amazing artists out there have drawn inspiration from our games over the years,” said Paul Sams, Blizzard's chief operating officer. “Deciding which pieces to include in this book will be a huge challenge, but we’re looking forward to working with UDON to select the best of the best and put together an epic collection. And who knows — maybe in the process, we’ll discover some great new artists to invite to work with us on future Blizzard games."

You'll probably have to waive any rights to your work to submit it. Furthermore, it's unlikely you'll be paid. Nonetheless, you'll get a chance to show off your art to a wide audience and, as Sams says, potentially get the attention of Blizzard in the process.

The art book will first be released as a limited edition hardcover at San Diego Comic Con next summer.
