A complete list of winners is available online. And for the first time we have a new category of winners: Honorable Mentions must receive at least two judges’ votes to be accepted. Our medal and merit winners will be published in our print and digital editions of the 3x3 Illustration Annual No. 11 due out this Winter. Winners and Honorable Mentions will be exhibited online as well.
Congratulations to all our winners. And thank you to our judges who took time out of their busy days to judge the work. We will be announcing winners in both our Picture Book and Student Show winners shortly.
