Art Show Awards

Each year the JordanCon Art Show awards four awards to recognize the most outstanding works by our exhibiting artists.

The first award is a Judges' Choice Award for the best work of art in that year's show, as determined by a panel consisting of our Art Show directors and the Artist Guest of Honor for that year. This award doesn't necessarily have to go to a single work. It can be (and has been) awarded to a group of works that work together as a thematic whole, such as Joe O'Hara's group of Wheel of Time character portraits, which won the prize at JordanCon IV. The winner of the Judge's Choice Award is presented with a trophy and a framed certificate. You can see photos of these award winners over the years in the list below. It's immediately obvious why they were selected by our Guest of Honor as outstanding art.
