January Challenge - Retrospective

Poster by Zipeng Phil Zhu

The first ever Art Challenge took place in January, 2010. With limited advertising and no official prizes, it was nevertheless a fantastic turnout. We received a lot of wonderful work on the theme "Identy, Struggle, Muse, Collapse." Liam Ahern, Bryony Redhead, and Jensine Eckwall were the January winners.

Everyone gathered to view the film submissions.
