We are so excited to announce the winner and runners up of our Kidlit411 banner contest! Our prompt was to either (1) re-interpret our original birds on the wire theme or (2) to express what Kidlit411 means to the creator. We received so many wonderful entries and are truly grateful for the time and dedication given by every one of the entrants. Congrats to all!
Each of our winners will have their website banner and Facebook cover image posted for a month in 2019, along with an Illustrator Spotlight. First and second place winners also get cash prizes. The judges were Elaine Kiely Kearns & Sylvia Liu.
