3x3 ProShow Winners Announced
It is always interesting to see what our judges favor, and it seems they were looking for something new this year with a lot of new faces being represented. All judging was done digitally, the judges only saw a entry number with the image and were not aware of who the artist was.
And as always our show differs from most other shows in that our winners represent a number of countries outside the United States. Our medalists and merits represent thirty-six countries.
Our top winners represent twelve countries with our Best of Show going to IC4Design in Japan; Gold medals went to Katarzyna Bogdanska, Poland; Rod Hunt, United Kingdom; Elisa Talentino, Italy and Manuja Waldia, United States.
Silver medal winners include Patrick Doyon, Canada; James Gilleard, United Kingdom; Jianrong Lin, United States; Enzo Lo Re, Italy and Ileana Soon, United States.
Bronze medals went to Melinda Beck, United States; Siyu Cao, China; Menelaos Kouroudis, Greece; Ryan Garcia, Canada; Emiliano Ponzi, Italy and Jhao-Yu Shih, Taiwan.
Our Distinguished Merits included illustrators from United Kingdom, Germany, Singapore, Ireland, Israel and the United States.
It was wonderful to see so many more entries in the Animation category this year and it appears our judges loved what they saw.

Congratulations to our winners and we wish to thank our judges for their time completing the judging process.
