After months of deliberation, we can finally announce the winner of the Breakthrough Contest. Below is the press release we just sent out today. Congratulations Michal!
The Breakthrough Contest Has Broken Cover!
The Breakthrough Contest is the first illustration competition to be launched by an artist's representative. With the help of 20 Judges, all working industry pros, we selected a winner from 400+ entries from 15+ countries with only a few points separating the top 5.
AND THE WINNER IS... Michal Dziekan, a 26 year old illustrator from Warsaw, Poland; a true diamond in the rough. Since 2009 Michal has been working as a freelance illustrator on book covers, editorial/advertising illustration, t-shirt/character designs, and animation. You can see more of his work on his website michaldziekan.com. We look forward to bringing Michal to NYC in late October, award him his prize, and introduce him to many art/design directors .
