The competition awards a Grand Prize worth $500 and a First Place Award (worth $100) in each of the eight categories.  These winners will also see their work reproduced in the July-August 2014 issue of  The Artist’s Magazine.

Recognition is also given to three Honorable Mentions in each category; these works will be showcased on The Artist’s Magazine website.
