We were honored to receive over 200 submissions from artists across the U.S. and Canada. Participants spanned all regions and art styles - and ranged in age from 8 year old beginning artists to elders with "Master Artist" status! It was no easy task for our staff to narrow down these submissions, but after looking at every single image and reaching every narrative, we are ready to make some moves. Thank you so much to all the artists who submitted!
We're starting out by recognizing Honorable Mentions. These are stand-out submissions that just missed for the Semi-Finals, which we will be announcing the next couple days. In the meantime, check out the beautiful artwork below along with some comments from our staff. We've added a link to their website or social media pages whenever possible.
If you'd like to receive notice of when the semi-finalists and finalists come out, you can sign up to our mailing list here.
