    1st Place, Grand Prize Winner:

    Hillside Relic by Brian LaSaga: “This work is very original with a strong composition and a skillful capturing of the snow in its various different states. The “flat” light of the sky is nicely handled. The artist has done an excellent job of taking what seems so ordinary and elevating it to beautiful." — Kathy Duley, Final Juror of Awards
