Dear Esteemed Nominees, Solo Exhibition Members, and Guests,

Welcome to SoJie 25. Solo Exhibition presents its 25th Juried Invitational Art Exhibition, celebrating sixty-two (62) artists, representing over fifiteen countries, exhibiting 69 Traditional, Digital, and Photographic Artworks.

All works in the show are nominated works, invited by a specially selected, rotating group of Solo Exhibition artists and photographers. Some works which were nominated, but did not enter in time for judging, may be shown in the SoJie 25 Annex, on page 3, following the main entries.

Placement Awards

First through Third places and Honors in the Traditional Art, Digital Art, and Photographic Art categories, will be awarded, based on the total of ALL Judges’ scores. The artwork with the highest score, over all categories, will be awarded “Best in Show”, besides a category first place. Honors awards are give to all non-placing works which are in the top scoring tier over all categories and works in the show. Judges will also make special merit awards.

Starting with SoJie 25, we are introducing a new award, “High Marks”, for works scoring in the top 10 percent.

Scoring is done individually by each judge, using a special application created by the Founder. The application allows the judges to contemplate each full size work while scoring it. However, the process of tallying and calculating placement and honors awards is automated, and generally involves no human intervention. Not even the judges can be sure of the outcome, until the SoJie Awards Day ceremony.

Awards Day will be on Wednesday, October 30, at 11 AM, New York time. (<< click for the worldclock time in your city) The interactive awards ceremony is held in the virtual exhibition space on RedBubble, with a party afterwards, for all who are awake! Virtual drink and no-calorie goodies will be served, to celebrate a great show.

Congratulations to all! And thank you for coming to the exhibition and supporting these wonderful artists from all over the globe.

Your comments on the art are welcome. Comments begin following the exhibits; on page 4.
