We are please to announce the winners of the 2008 AoB / KoB Article Contest.

By separating the entries into the categories of the contest, adding the scores of our three judges together for each entry, and dividing that total by three to determine the average score per entry, we determined the winners. The entry with the highest total average score was declared to be the winner of that category.

The judges original judging sheets and the final score sheet, which combines all the judges scores and comments together, are attached to this post in order to maintain transparency and for the use of those who wish to compare.

All the entries for the "AoB / KoB Article Contest" that fall into the artistic principles, history, or art theory classification can be viewed at ( viewforum.php?f=67 ).


All the entries for the "AoB / KoB Article Contest" that fall into the Collecting, Cultivation, or Styling classification can be viewed at ( http://www.knowledgeofbonsai.org/forum/ ... .php?f=121 ).

Please take a moment today and help us thank all of the people, sponsors and entrants that made this contest the success it is by dropping by our thank you thread ( http://www.artofbonsai.org/forum/viewto ... c83b015bc9 ) and posting a word or two.

After all the judges scores were tallied and the average score for each entry was determined, we had a tie for the best overall article between "The Principles Of Good Bonsai Design" and "Finding the Tree Within". Pauline Muth, President of the American Bonsai Society, acted as the tie breaking judge, scoring each of the above articles separately and determining the overall winner.


And now, the winners of the 2008 AoB / KoB Article Contest.
