Many congrats to TEA KAU, who is the grand prize winner of the art contest, with the drawing seen further down in the news post! Congratulations with your win!
How was the winner picked?
The judges were made up of everyone in Genki’s managment, except Victor. Victor accepted all the drawings, removed the signature and similar, so that the judges were not influenced by possibly knowing the artist. Each judge then select 5 drawings in a prioritized order, that they decided deserved to win.
Their choices were kept hidden from one another, so that one judges choice could not influence anothers, so the only one who knew the collective score was Victor, who was not allowed to vote.
A little bonus
Because it was a really close race, and because someone else could have won, if we had decided on another format for judging, we’ve decided to give free weekend tickets (though without the Artist Alley table) to FRANK ROMBOUTS and MELANIE SASSARINI! Congratulations to you as well!
