3x3 International Illustration Student Show Winners Announced
The judges selected our winners from nearly 1,000 entries from 112 schools in 18 countries. After all the votes were tallied the judges awarded a Best of Show award, four Gold medals, four Silver, seven Bronze medals and nine Distinguished Merits in addition to fifty-two merit awards. Ninety-three Honorable Mentions were also announced.
Congratulations to Chenfu Hsing, Toyo Institute of Art and Design, Shinjuku, Japan, our Best of Show winner.
Max Loeffler, Hochschule Darmstadt, Darmstadt, Germany, Xin Ren, University of the Arts London, United Kingdom, Katherine Lam, Ringling College of Art and Design and Enzo Lo Re, Brera Academy, Milan, Italy were our Gold medal winners. A complete list of this year’s winners are online.
Our judges were asked to vote an entry either In or Out, a majority of the judges votes were needed to be accepted into the show and a combination of total votes plus judge’s favorites determined each of our medal winners.
There were a great many entries that fell just shy of being accepted into the show and there were very few where the entry didn’t receive at least one or more judge’s votes.
Winners will be published in our print and digital editions due out later this year. They’ll also be exhibited online. A complimentary digital edition is being sent to leading art directors along with contact information for each illustrator.
Thank you to our judges for taking time out of their busy schedules to complete the judging process. And a heartfelt thank you to our Show Chair, Rod Hunt for all his help with the Show.
We’ll be announcing winners for our other two shows in the coming days.
