IBA 7 Winning Entries Announced

Posted On: 1/25/2019 3:12:00 PM

We're thrilled to announce that the jury process for Infected by Art Volume 7 is complete! The strong level of the work submitted certainly made the process more challenging compared to previous volumes. We wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU to our jury panel of Thomas Kuebler, Yoann Lossel, Dave Seeley and Cynthia Sheppard for taking time during the Holidays and their busy schedules. 
Not only are we able to announce which artworks made it into IBA 7 but we are also prepared to announce which works have won our Grand Prizes and Art Medium Honors. Infected by Art Volume 7 will have 268 artists represented, while still maintaining a similar number of works selected as compared to past volumes, to ensure most artworks are displayed full page in our art annual.

Congratulations to Justin Gerard for winning this Volume's 1st Place Grand Prize of $1,000 with his artwork entitled For Hate's Sake. Runners up were paintings by Annie Stegg with The Serpent, Jeremy Wilson's The Haunting of Hill House, Vishnu's third Avatar - the Boar by Colin Poole, and Tran Nguyen's drawing RestVanessa Lemen was also chosen by her artistic peers to win the Body of Work Award for IBA 7.

The artwork we select for the Cover Award will be chosen at a later time once we are able to review the submissions with our publisher, ArtOrder LLC.
There were 30 artworks that were unanimously selected by the Jury Panel through their rounds of voting that deserve special recognition considering we had almost 2,100 pieces submitted to this year's competition. We've created a page for you to view those pieces as they certainly represent what the Jury Panel felt were the best pieces submitted to IBA 7. 
The artwork selected by our Jury Panel represents some of the best works of imaginative realism being created today by artists who have been in the business for many years as well as many up-and-coming artists. It is an incredible honor for us to showcase these works of art. Congratulations to all the artists who have been selected to be a part of Infected by Art Volume 7!
IBA 7 will go into production this Spring and debut next Fall at IX 12. For information related to past competitions visit our website or for information about purchasing earlier volumes of Infected by Art visit our online store.
Warmest Regards,
