Grand Prize winner of Gnomon’s Winter 2020 Best of Term Competition by Elvira Trofimova.

We are thrilled to unveil Elvira Trofimova as the Grand Prize winner of Gnomon’s Winter 2020 Best of Term Competition for her character realism artwork based on her own original concept.

Each quarter, Gnomon encourages students to submit their best work completed during the previous term to recognize the standout talent and artistry of our student body. The high quality of artwork completed during the recent Winter term has us blown away, and we’re incredibly proud of all of the exceptional work from our students. Although there can only be one winner per category, the sheer number of high quality submissions made selections of this term’s winners especially challenging.

Congratulations to our Grand Prize and Category winners! The full list of winners is shown below, and you can see all the winning Best of Term entries here
