You can still find illustrationfriday.com but it is no longer the site that once hosted a weekly prompt and sometimes offered awards. The new domain is http://www.illustrationage.com . It's still a great resource for budding illustrators, though.
Because of this change, I will be placing the group into stasis as a read-only gallery of collected illustrations. No new illustrations will be added... UNLESS there is someone who would like to curate the collection by finding good illustrations in Deviant art and add them. If you'd like to be a curator, please send me a Note.

My deviantART Story
someone has taken over the illustration Friday blog and is sending junk mail to those of us who subscribed to the blog I have blocked them. I didn't know the site was gone, it's a pity and it is annoying that the database with our email addresses is now owned by an unknown entity. I subscribed with my professional email address too... I usually subscribe with my .gmail account to blogs, but this was supposed to be a trusted source.
