  • Group 7: Best Use of Stocks

    I hope that everyone is suitably excited and ready for the very first set of awards to be announced! And if we’re going to start with some awards, why not start with a whole pile of them!

    The following awards are to congratulate artists on how well they have mastered the use of stock images in a particular piece of art. This technique offers so much to artists, images can offer symbolic meanings, or a fantastic texture, but overall, stocks add a greater depth and meaning to each piece.

    And without ado… I am now extremely pleased to give you our first fifteen awards of the evening, and our first winners of this event!!

    There really were some incredibly strong contenders for this award right from the beginning, as I’m sure you can see. There were some truly awesome entries in this category and I know that I for one had a tough time picking my top 10. So, well done to those who snagged an award! As you can probably tell this order has changed a lot throughout the voting process and it wasn’t until the very last form came in that we landed with this particular order, there are several places very, very close together in terms of points!

    I’ll be back soon, with our 2nd batch of awards, Best Twilight Book/Scene Wallpaper.
