Artistic Excellence 2013

Meet the 13 winners of our annual art competition

by Bonnie Gangelhoff

It’s time once again to reveal the winners of our annual Artistic Excellence competition—first, second, and third place, plus 10 honorable mentions. The competition was open to artists of all ages and experience levels living anywhere in the world, and it was open to artworks of any medium, subject, and style. Particularly notable this year is the fact that six of the 13 winners are stunning still lifes. They are complemented by three powerful figures, two gorgeous wildlife pieces, a moody urban scene, and a sparkling landscape. We hope you enjoy them all!
