Congratulations to the Infected by Art Season 2 Winners

Posted On: 1/24/2014 7:36:00 PM

Our Jury Panel completed their selections today and we're thrilled to be able to present to you the winners of the Infected by Art Season 2 competition. The voting for the overall winners at all levels was incredibly close, and that's due in large part to the incredible entries we had during this competition. As you know, with IBA 2 we changed the Certificates of Merit from genre to Art Medium in order to level the playing field with the pieces submitted, and that helped to make the selections all that more difficult this time around. 

Without further ado, here are the winners of Infected by Art Season 2.

When we looked closely at the vote totals on we felt that those pieces that were unanimously voted on by the Jury Panel deserved special recognition. We've created a special page for you to view those pieces as they certainly represent what the Jury Panel felt were the best pieces submitted to IBA 2.

Congratulations to all the winners from Infected by Art Season 2! We'll be in touch very soon with those winners of prize awards or certificates. Because of our new site platform, as well as our new partnership with Hermes Press, we're anticipating a much faster turn around on the Infected by Art Season 2 book. We are currently estimating an early to mid-Summer release of the book, and will update you during the production process.
