Three students were further honored as award winners. First Place ($150) was awarded to Eibhlin Villalta, University of Richmond, for “Choreography”. “Choreography” is a mysterious grouping of sepia-toned images of dancers attached by thread to the fingers of a controlling hand. Alexis Dunnigan, Ringling College of Art & Design won Second Place ($100) for her sensitive, intimate portrait, “Coming of Age”. Greenville Tech student Irina Dalby’s scanography “Green Hydrangea” is a dynamic Third ($75).

Through a blind jurying process she choose 25 image to create the in focus exhibition and its award winners.
