3x3 ProShow Winners Announced

The judges have made their decision, another year of tough judging from a great field of illustration entries from the US, Canada, the UK, France, Italy, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. 71% of our entries received more than one judge's vote and only 15% of the entries received no votes, 14% received a majority of votes and will be in this year's show.

To be accepted into the show an entry must receive the majority of the nine judge's votes, 5 out of 9. Entries receiving 6 out of 9 votes receive a Bronze, 7 out of 9 receive a Silver, 8 out of 9 receive a Gold and 9 out of 9 receive Best of Show honors. There was actually a tie this year for Best of Show and pre-selected judges were asked to make the final decision. Entrants who were also judges abstained from voting for their own work.

This year's judges included art directors Alexandre Lagoet, Saatchi & Saatchi, The Netherlands; Raban Ruddigkeit, Friestil, Germany; SooJin Buzelli, Planadvisor, US and Darlene Simidian, former art director ALA and illustrators Roman Klonek and Monica Aichele, Germany; Marco Ventura, Italy; Nate Williams, Argentina and Yuko Shimizu, US.

Winners will be contacted next week regarding their winning entries. All winners will be included in the 3x3 Illustration Annual No. 6 due out later this year.

Thanks to all for entering and we look forward to seeing your new work next year.
