2016 IVCC Creates Contest Winners

Thanks to everyone who submitted work to the 2016 IVCC Creates Contest–as writers and artists ourselves, we know how simultaneously exciting and nerve-racking it is to share your work with others.

Our 2016 Selection Process

The contest results were decided by means of a blind selection process where submissions and file names did not reference author or artist . River Currents student staff editors viewed visual submissions saved as high quality color files. Editors voted for their personal winner, runner-up, and honorable mention for each category and any ties were discussed before a re-vote. Results appear below and were published in our 2016 issue.

“Pieces to the Puzzle” by Arinze Ochuba, winner
