This was a juried competition, but also included a public component where anyone could vote on and comment about the entries. I’m honored to be included amongst the previous winners: Nick Rodrigues, Lin Zhang, Hye Neon Nam, Phillip Stearns. This season’s jury included Nam, as well as Travis Lee Street, Gabriela Vainsencher, and the competition’s founder, Dawn Graham. There were also two honorable mentions this time—both are works I suggest you check out: Partnered: We are All Pests by Brittany Ransom, and Domestic Carnival by Jason Ferguson.
Needless to say, I’ll be putting the prize money ($1000) to good use, funding technology for my next piece.
