Welcome to Annual No.18 Online Gallery

Welcome to 3x3 Annual 18. Even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, artists were thriving. Our judges viewed more than 5,900 images before determining this year’s winning entries. Representing thirty-five countries, fifty-one percent of winners were from outside the United States. Congratulations to our Best of Show winners Alexandria Hall and Margaux Medwin, and to Xin Zhang, China, this year’s Gary Powell Student Illustrator honoree, and to all our winners. We are also delighted to honor the incomparable illustrator Monika Aichele as our Educator/Illustrator of the Year.
