JUDGES were sent the photos below and instructed to rate the submissions from 1 to 9 – with 1 as their favorite and 9 as their least favorite. Final judging was blind and the photos did not have the name of the submitter nor any information other than the title of the work. Judges were instructed that if they recognized the work of a submitter, they were to recuse themself from voting on that work.
We at ZO Magazine marveled at the final choices. We think they are all “truly” – A Different Kind of Universe of Fashion . . .
Everyone connected to the Expo thought the entries were thought-provoking and inspiring. Especially some of the artist’s descriptions of their methodology and raison d’être for creating. Once the ratings were all in, the votes were averaged and the winners were chosen by the math. Often the differences in placement were small fractions. There’s a lot of inspired work here . . .
Thanks and blessings to everyone involved. ZO’s next Expo will be a little different from those prior and we hope to start it in June. On Sun. March 26, we will host an online Zoom Breakfast Toast, meeting with artists that work with us. We will also invite those who submitted to this Expo. The Zoom call will include poetry, music, and a few chefs (from NYC, LA, CA, and Honolulu) sharing their breakfast specialties. Information on all of this will be forthcoming on our Welcome Page.
