Sketch for Survival 2019 Finalists

We received over 450 entries and the standard was incredibly high. Entries came from all over the world – Asia, Australasia, North, Central and South America, Africa and most countries in Europe.

Our Judging Panel was led by Gary Hodges, the UK’s best selling and most collectable pencil artist, and Karen Laurence-Rowe, an award-winning Conservation Artist based in Kenya. They were assisted by Robert Ferguson and Sara White, trustees of Explorers against Extinction. It took a full day of deliberation to narrow it down to the 100, the final cut from 120 to 100 taking several hours.

The following 100 pieces were selected to join our Invitational Collection on their UK tour. Congratulations to all these artists.
