THE SECOND ANNUAL HERON’S NEST ILLUSTRATION CONTEST

 

A hearty thank you to the artists from four countries who sent their work to us. We are grateful for a second straight year of strong submissions!

As with Volume VII, Volume VIII features art on the cover, divisional pieces for the overview section, the seasons in which the quarterly issues appear, and sectional headings within the Readers’ Choice Awards presentation.

This year’s cover consists of two superb photographs taken by Carol Conti-Entin, one constitutes the front, the other the back. We think you’ll find the other prints, drawings, paintings, and photographs are excellent as well.

Here are the winners and and their works of art.
