Good news everyone! :) The Hilton Head International Piano Competition holds a contest each year to design the art that will be used in their posters, brochures, flyers, website - basically, al manner of marketing and advertising promotions for the upcoming year's piano competition. This year, there were nearly 50 submissions, and yours truly won 2nd place!
Not only that, but I'll be given a monetary award, and my poster will be shown, along with the third and first place winners, in the lobby of the competition hall this year, and the next.
With the exception of my parents, this is the first time that I've been paid for my art, and it is a real boost of confidence to know that there are clients out there interested in my style, and that making a career is more possible than ever. I'd like to thank the HHIPC for selecting my work and my "getting published" class that provided me the opportunity to enter. It's such an honor.
