The quality of entries in this round was amazing! Between Caroline Julia Moore, Karim Fakhoury and I, we came up with Amelia Blanco’s Nightmares as the August, 2016 winner of the Shift Art Photoshop Challenge!

Amelia will receive a $100 gift certificate to the DIYP Raw Exchange Store! Three runner ups will receive a texture pack of their choice from Caroline Julia Moore Fine Art Textures & Elements!

Each judge assigned 3 points to their winning picks, and 1 point to three additional entries. What we ended up with was one winner, two very close runner ups, a third runner up and four additional images noticed by at least one judge. 

Winner: Nightmares by Amelia Blanco

First runner ups (shared equally by): No Way Out by Dennis Carson and The Crow on the Fence by Julie Denning
