Art Show Awards

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

The first 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. However, 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 other three awards are determined by a vote in which any JordanCon attendee can participate. These are the aptly named "People's Choice" awards. Ballots for these awards are available at the Art Show and are counted at the end of the Silent Auction. Typically, there is a category for "Best Wheel of Time Art," as well as "Best Non-Wheel-of-Time Art," and then a final category for 3D art, such as sculpture, jewelry, or other mixed media or alternative media pieces that do not easily fit into a standard picture frame. As with the Judge's Choice awards, if a group of pieces work as a whole, the entire group can be awarded a People's Choice Award in a specific category.

Why You Should Come to JordanCon

by Guest Blogger Leslie Annis

It’s that time of year again!

Okay... you got me... it’s not quite April yet, but it’s that time when we start shamelessly promoting our shiny weekend that is JordanCon, in the hopes of sharing our communal merriment with Wheel of Time friends far and wide—those we’ve met and those we hope to meet.

Seriously, yo. Come and play. It’s a sweet time, and one you won't regret. The more we get together the merrier, faster, stronger, and the partier we’ll be.
