Before & After: The Top 40 - The Zibra Blog
Our panel of four judges have made their decisions and we have our TOP 40! All four judges have shared how inspiring, yet difficult, it was to narrow it down to just 40. With the decision made out of hundreds of entries, we are now ready to open the voting to the public. Your votes will accumulate into a 50% weight – the judges carry an equal weight as well. Once the voting concludes on August 2, we will tabulate the votes, along with the judge’s votes, and announce on Tuesday, August 7 our First, Second and Third Place Winners! For this Contest, we are asking you to carefully evaluate and review each BEFORE and AFTER piece and choose your 5 favorite pieces, we also need you to rank your five pieces from 1 to 5. No. 1 meaning your First place choice and so on. You can see more detail by clicking on the piece to enlarge the photo. Keep track of your 5 favorites and at the bottom of this page fill out the form. You must vote for 5 and rank them for your votes to count. You can only vote once.

All the votes are in from the public and our four judges!

 

Now that all the votes are in we are busy tabulating the results for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place from out Top 40. Stay tuned in for the announcement of winners on Tuesday, August 7!

 

Meanwhile, feel free to look over and enjoy the beautiful submissions that made our Top 40 below.

1. Is there a dramatic improvement in the piece from its BEFORE to its AFTER?

2. Does the AFTER show ingenuity and creativity of the original piece and does it show an appreciation for the original design?

3. Staging and photography (many times a beautiful piece loses its appeal because of poor staging and photography).

4. We don’t want to forget the subjective aspect of art – what one person finds beautiful, another may find undesirable – with that in mind, remember what you are drawn to from an aesthetic appeal and vote!
