A ROUND OF APPLAUSE

“Full effort is full victory.” —MAHATMA GANDHI

It’s a great pleasure to present in this issue the 15 prizewinning works. It’s just one example of the importance of confidence and persistence when it comes to one’s art, but it’s also worth noting that recognition and awards aren’t the only reasons for participating in juried exhibitions and competitions. Think of competitions primarily as motivational tools. They encourage artists to take the time to evaluate and reflect on their work and progress, and invite the kind of challenge that gives rise to growth. Surely, any artist who has pushed his or her work forward is a winner indeed.
