The results of the April 2017 Shift Art Photoshop Challenge are in!

The winning entry emerged easily, but we had a three way tie for first runner up. After a tie-breaker round, the points distributed themselves for another tie! So, we decided to leave it a tie. It was clearly meant to be.

The panel of judges was made up of the current featured artist, Marcela Bolivar, past featured artist Caroline Julia Moore, and Shift Art founder, Andrei Tallent.

We are excited to announce this month’s winner: The Vestals by Bethany Perron!
