Not forgetting Memo’s video contribution:
Wow, what an awesome turn out for the competition.
Such a wonderful, diverse contribution from a wide range of artists.
What more could be expected with a theme like ‘Art’.
Just what is art exactly? Usually I’d go into huge explanation but I would not dare with such a word. If you create, you are an artist. This is exactly what was shown with every competitors entry for this competition. It’s always an honour to witness these creations first hand and to all the artists, I thank you for participating.
We would love to thank all the monkey participants for their efforts. Like with any competition, we can’t all be winners. Having said that, all admin and behind the scenes monkeys participated in the comp merely for
moral support and the fun of it. Without the members,
this would not be able to happen.
We know it’s quite impossible for anyone to judge “art” as a general term.  So we asked the judges to choose the pieces – of any and all levels of talent – that they felt most exemplify:
-Evocation of emotion and/or influence
-Ingenuity of idea and design
-Creativity
-Effort

Here’s what the judges had to say:

“We really enjoyed judging all the pieces but found it very difficult to choose.  All entries truly contained amazing ingenuity and creativity – from beautiful displays of fantasy and emotion, to dynamic, captivating blends of serene colors, to some that appeared to be actual oil painting portraits.  All the artists displayed so much creativity.
They have such a unique skill…
  Very impressive!”

They had such a difficult time selecting the winners and wanted to give special mention to these pieces as well.

honorable mentions

 We would love to thank all of our sponsors for their support and contributions. With out it, this would not have been the success it is today.
A big thank you to the people behind the scenes who take time and effort out of their day to make the competition a success. To all MonkeySideBars administration, I’d like to thank you for your efforts making this happen.
The judging is totally impartial and unbiased.
Thank you judges for your efforts, it is greatly appreciated and we thank you for your time and assistance. We know this must have been a difficult
decision based on the high caliber of entries.
The winners; well, it would have been an incredibly difficult task for the judges but what about the entries? They were magnificent. Such an amount of effort and reflection of artistic style and skills. It’s always an honour to
witness these creations first hand and to all the competitors,
I thank you for trying out and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
