PaintAmerica Top100 Judging Complete - Look For Results Later This Week
The long juror's weekend is finally complete. This past weekend, jurors Cally Krallman, Mike Albrechtsen and Henry Dixon deliberated over the hundreds of entries that had survived the preliminary jury process. 190 Mini entries made it to the final round of judging, and 309 full-size entries survived the preliminary jury, making a total of 499 entries judged in the final round this past weekend.
It was a grueling process, with judging going until 11:30 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday nights. The juror panel was extremely careful in reviewing each piece, offering excellent comments and critiques. Each piece was scored individually by each judge, and all scoresheets will be tabulated by a third-party to determine the Top100 full-size scores, Top50 Mini scores, and ultimate Grand Prize winners. We'll be posting the Judges Choice Awards to this site later this week, and expect to have the full results back to us and posted on Friday, January 16th.
