(First place - $1,000; Second place - $500; Third Place - $200; Best of Show - $2,000). Each artist was able to submit up to three pieces for the show. All pieces are available to purchase, and Ganondagan has the  right of first refusal (the right to purchase before any other offers are considered).

The show committee accepted digital images of the work up until June 17th and the artists will be notified this week if their submissions have been accepted into the show.
