ISCA Private Facebook Communities
ISCA Member’s Facebook Contest. Few caricature drawings are sillier or more hilarious than when caricaturists draw each other. In this group a new subject is chosen twice a month and everyone posts their submissions to be voted on, just for fun! At the end of the year, the 24 winners are voted on, and that champion gets a free year of ISCA membership! Available to all ISCA membership levels.
Facebook Contest BONUS! Do YOU want to get in the running to be picked to be the subject of a contest? We love new faces! Available to all ISCA membership levels.
