Professional Show No.18: Winners Announced

Below are the list of medal and merit winners from our Professional Show that will be reproduced in the 3x3 Illustration Annual No.18. Medal and merit winners must have received a majority of our judge’s votes; honorable mention winners must have had half of our judges’ votes for their entry. All medal, merit and distinguished merit winners will appear in the Annual print, digital, and online.
