It’s here!! The results of the River Currents IVCC Creates Contest. This year we included the special guest judge Ari Ochuba–last year’s art/photography category winner (who also took runner-up and honorable mention). All those who placed in the contest will be published in our forthcoming 2017 issue, out in April this year, and will be honored at our release party (date TBA but planned for mid-to-late April).
Our 2017 Selection Process
We reviewed all submissions for the contest this year since it was clear that a few students intended to submit to the contest but used the “general submission” guidelines by mistake. We overlooked that misunderstanding and decided to include everyone in the contest. Because why not?! River Currents student staff considered all pre-copy-edited written submissions and viewed visual submissions and 3D artwork saved as high quality color files. Our special guest judge, Ari participated in the photography and art categories. Editors voted for their personal winner, runner-up, and honorable mention for each category with the final decision being made by the Editor-in-Chief and Assistant Editor. Results appear below and will be included in our forthcoming 2017 issue (it’s currently being designed and while we may be biased, it’s goals).
