Thank you to our judges, Hangama Amiri, and Jillian Tamaki, for being generous with their time and expertise, and to every artist who shared with us their work. The annual contest will open again in September.
We're excited to announce the shortlisted artworks from our second Annual Cover Art Contest 2016! After reviewing over 250 artworks from over 100 artists, here is the shortlist as determined by our esteemed judges--Hangama Amiri, and Jillian Tamaki.
We've extended the deadline of our cover art contest. Submit your visual art to our judges Jillian Tamaki and Hangama Amiri before December 15, 2016, and it could be on a cover of Room in 2017.
Hangama Amiri, one of this year’s cover art contest judges, is an Afghan-Canadian artist. She was a Canadian Fulbright and Post-Graduate Fellow at Yale University School of Art and Sciences and has exhibited her painting nationally as well as internationally in such cities as New York, France, Italy, and London. Room’s Geffen Semach spoke with Amiri to learn a little more about her work and her expectations for the contest.
