Digital Art Contest Winners

Crazy Techie Summer is complete! This summer library program provided Salinas teens with digital art workshops and contests. The library thanks all who participated. The digital art contest winners have been selected.

Check out the winning entries:

Video Contest

Super Hero Guy

Daniel Coulter and Jake Fox wrote, directed, filmed, and edited this award winning video.

Judges selected this video because of it's original premise and heartfelt message. It's also quite funny!

Photo Contest

Photo by Emily Doughty-Wood

Emily Doughty-Wood wins with this great image.

The photo contest required entries to capture Salinas, CA. The judges liked how real the workers appear as they look out to the world. Nice shot Emily!

Comic Contest

Readerman Comic Winner (cover)

Comic by Estrella Thoeni

Readerman is the superhero who protects the Salinas Public Library and readers everywhere. This comic contest gave teens the opportunity to create a comic about this local superhero.

Estrella Thoeni won with her hand-drawn entry. She submitted chapter one of what hopefully becomes a graphic novel. This first chapter left the judges wanting more!
