Do you know we will hear word of those who were chosen the specific scholarships? Or are those pieces in this group.

Been a really good day! Thanks for putting my piece on the banner. Made my day.

Scholarship winners are chosen from the actual exhibition. So after the work is sent in it is juried for the awards.

I was just directed here and found out that I got in! Phew, what a nice day-ender. Thanks for posting!

Thanks for getting the word out, Irene! We'll be sending out information to all the schools about getting the students art framed and shipped in.

The second week of March, the jury will be coming back and making their decisions on the monetary awards. It's going to be tough!

Just some info: This year's competition was the largest entered show in the history of the competition. 6205 entries! Only 195 pieces were selected into the show. That's 3.8%! ...and the work this year was stellar. I can't even begin to tell you how awesome the work was that didn't get in by one vote!

It's going to be a great show and look forward to seeing everyone there May 7th for the opening.
