The Pillar of Art is Standing
The day has come - and man, have we been waiting for it! The Pillar of Art contest results have finally been posted. Details, and images of all the entries, can be found on the Pillar of Art site... but we'll recap the basic stuff here.
- First Prize: Adam Vehige ($250, and a signed piece from Bungie)
- Second Prize: Richard Menchaca ($150)
- Third Prize: Russ Leach ($100)
- Special Award: Geoff Chang (Red MC action figure, as seen on the webcam)
There are also (as-yet unannounced) prizes for some of the younger submitters; we haven't pinned down exactly what's available yet, so we haven't decided how to divvy up the loot - but that's coming. Also coming are artist bios, and their explanations of their work. (We simply didn't have time to get all of this into web-friendly format in time for this post.) The gallery showing for all of this work will take place on July 5, and details will be posted as the day gets closer. Congratulations to everyone who entered - we had a tough time! And to Richard Menchaca - we hope this prize makes a decent birthday present for you today. :) (Louis Wu 16:22:50 UTC)
