Selected in Top 10 Finalists, 2016 Scene360 Award
Selected as one of the best ten artworks submitted in 2016 by Illusion -- I was selected by Illusion Webzine as a Top 10 finalist for their Scene360 Award. Each year, from all the readers submissions (read artists submissions) they receive during the year , the people at Scene360, select the ten best finalists for a shot at their trophy.
«Reader submissions for 2016 ran the gamut, from tattoos and hyperrealistic drawings to sculptures, music videos, fashion shoots, documentaries, spray painting, murals, and photos that resemble past-century paintings. Photography made a strong showing this year. Choosing only 10 meant leaving a lot of impressive work off the list.
The selection was based primarily on typical criteria such as composition, creativity, originality, innovation, and technique—and readers’ reactions to the artworks on social media also informed the decision-making process. In the end, with so much creative variety, it also came down to execution and emotional expression. This year’s top 10 cover a range of media and formats, and they all stand out from the crowd.»
