The Lost Fishes Art Challenge winners

We are excited to say that our judges Jeremy Wade, Dr Eleanor Adamson, and Ivan Mikolji have announced the winners of the inaugural Lost Fishes Art Challenge.

Judging was incredibly difficult. Not only were the entries such a high standard, the judging criteria was intentionally kept broad, meaning decisions ultimately came down to personal preference. This can be reflected by the fact that there were wildly different rankings between the judges for many of the species.

Each of the following entries were ranked highest overall from the judges’ combined scores, from shortlists of between 10 – 14 for each category.

Below the gallery, take a look at the video of the live panel discussion, where Jeremy, Eleanor and Ivan announced each of the winners, and discussed some of the other entries that caught their attention.
