Art Showcase Award Winners Announced!

This is always one of my favorite moments of the conference. There is huge, huge talent in our organization, and it's so much fun to look at all the work people bring to the show. There were more than 200 pieces of art in the show this year--the most ever.

Priscilla Burris, the chair of the illustrator's committee and an SCBWI board member, said it was a tug-of-war to choose a winner because the entries were so good, and they chose three honor award recipients instead of the usual two. 

Feast your eyes on the winners, and be sure to visit their sites--their names are links:

Leeza Hernandez

She'll have three appointments with art directors in New York, and the SCBWI will cover her travel expenses (all the way from New Jersey).

Kelly Light

Greg Pizzoli

Laurie Sharp
