2020 NSS Cover Art Salon

Every year, the NSS Convention offers a "Cover Art Contest". Grottos submit their favorite covers from the previous year to be judged and selected for awards. Most recently, the CARBIDE DUMP won merit awards and honorable mentions for newsletter covers. BRG cavers know how to pick them!

Below are covers from the 2018 CARBIDE DUMPS – vote for your favorite five covers, and send your votes to co-editor Mary Sue Socky. You do not have to be a BRG member to vote. Voting ends April 1, 2020.

Vote Well, and Vote Often!
