CCA 2013 Caricature Carving Competition
The Caricature Carvers of America (CCA) sponsored 2013 Caricature Carving Competition was held on August 21 and 22 in Converse, IN, and once again hosted by the Eastern Woodland Carvers Club. Club members handle receiving and unpacking of submissions, sit up displays for judging, and repack the carving for shipping home after the competition.
As in past years, the competition was keen and the judges had no small task in selecting the winners.
The CCA membership encourages anyone to competed in 2013 to do so again this year, and suggest that those carvers who have not entered the competition give it consideration. Judging is rotated among CCA members, so you can expect a fresh approach each year.
The Best of Show winner was Steve Dunman’s carving of Teamwork. Second Best of Show was Hindsight by Vern Parrish, and Scott Brown claimed Third Best of Show for Freshwater Fish w/ Weeds. You can see Carl Saathoff’s excellent photos of these and other winners in the Winners’ Galleries in this issue of WOM.
The top three winners received cash prices of $200, $100, and $50 respectively. First and second place in each category received prizes of $50 and $25.
