IWS Canada’s Facebook online watercolour contest opened on Canada Day and closed on August 31 at midnight EDT.
Now it is less than a month until our contest results are announced on October 1! This gives us time to make sure all entries are seen in the best, fairest, way possible.
Our way of processing the 1450 entries from over 80 countries so they were coded, means primary judging is done by vision alone, without knowledge of artist or country. We have an established set of guidelines and deadlines for the jurors to follow, and when jurying is finished, Ona Kingdon, our president, will have enough time to put together a beautiful video of the 150 finalists and the 8 winners to be ready October 1.
We can hardly wait to show you the final selections!
