3x3 ProShow Winners Announced
To get into the show entrants need to receive a majority of our eight judges’ votes. That means that five judges will have voted for an individual entry just to get into the show. To be considered for a medal, seven of the eight judges must vote for the entry. Medals are determined by the number of judges who select a particular piece as their favorite, the more judges who select a piece as their favorite the higher the medal i.e. Best of Show, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Judges were not permitted to vote for their own work.
Our Best of Show winner received eight out of eight votes plus five out of the eight judges voted it as their favorite, congratulations to Gonçalo Viana (Portugal) for his winning entry in the advertising category. A close runner-up was the young Victo Ngai who also had eight out of eight votes with two judges voting her editorial piece their favorite, hers was the only gold medal this year. Silver medals went to Daniel Zender, Anna & Elena Balbusso (Italy), Thornbery & Forester, Judit Gerencz (UK) and Simone Massoni (Italy). Bronze medals went to Elizabeth Baddeley, Joe Ciardiello, Nigel Buchanan (Australia), Daniel Dociu, Emiliano Ponzi (Italy), Olaf Hajek (Germany) and Rod Hunt (UK). Distinguished merit awards went to Charlie Powell, Allessandro Gottardo (Italy), Jon Reinfurt, Olaf Hajek (Germany), Mark Smith (UK), Edward Kinsella and Steve Simpson (Ireland).
A complete list of all winners and categories are available on our site, under Shows. Winners will be displayed in our new annual format coming out later this summer.
Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all of you for entering our show this year.
Best of Show winning entry, Gonçalo Viana, Portugal
