Take a Chance!
I haven't worked my way up to entering the illustration contests outside of the children's book world, but I do enter SCBWI portfolio contests as often as I can. Before I won the Tomie dePaola Portfolio Award last year there was a moment a few weeks before the conference where I almost talked myself out of not entering. What a shame that would have been!
Get your work out there and see what happens.
So guess what? I'm one of the 30 finalists. They will announce the winners mid-January. Cross your fingers, knock on wood, rub a horseshoe, eat a four-leaf cover and all that jazz for me!!!
