When I consider how my light is spent
Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,
And that one talent which is death to hide
Lodg’d with me useless, though my soul more bent
To serve therewith my Maker, and present
My true account, lest he returning chide,
At last our contest has come to a close, and it is time to announce the winners!
Our first prize goes to Amanda Mendoza, a student at Central Connecticut State University with a major in Art Education. Her piece, Tangled in Fantasy, is a well-rendered still life reflecting an array of contemporary fantasy standbys. She has won the $125 prize, and her work will be featured the thirteenth issue of Wisdom Crieth Without.
Our special prize for “Best Submitted Photograph” goes to Aleah Baker, a comic book artist known for her work on Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man. Her black-and-white photograph, Mississauga Curve, is stark and eye-catching, and represents the second time she’s netted our award for photography. She has won $100 and placement in the thirteenth issue of Wisdom Crieth Without.
