As always, assembling the photo gallery for the International Woodcarver Congress Winners is the greatest amount of work of any single article in WOM. The 2017 IWC Gallery was no exception. This edition has some 248 photos (twice that number if you count the thumbnails) including some of the best carvings you will see anywhere. In the winner galleries you’ll find 130 of photographer Marc Featherly’s excellent studio photos of the winners at IWC 2017, including more photos of the Best of Show winner.
In addition to the gallery of the prize-winning carvings, you’ll also find Marc’s candid photos from the Classes, Award Banquet, the Judges, the Show floor, and other photos around and about during Congress.
As always, the thumbnail photos in the winner’s gallery are clickable, and when clicked will take you to much larger versions of these great carvings. (Much larger then you’ll see in any paper publication.) The large photos will afford you the opportunity to really look at the winners in detail.
