THE RIGHTEOUS ROOKIE AWARD
We had some amazing submissions from all levels of artistic talent for the contest. Some were professional artists. Others were people who may not have had the level of expertise or tools to truly compete on the highest level, but still had an incredible sense of concept and vision. The senior staff of #Screeners unanimously decided to award one person who has obvious vision, but style or technical level keeps them from competing in the top 10. The Righteous Rookie Award will be a 3 Month Premium DA Membership.

These are posters selected by #Screeners staff, that we felt deserved some added recognition due to their high score and/or incredible originality. They may not have won a prize, but are still winners in our book. There are too many to list them all, but we felt these were some of the best. This selection is in no particular order.
Congrats to all of our winners! And thank you to everyone who participated in or worked on the contest.
