Juror's Choice Award
Donna Anderson Kam

Donna Anderson Kam is a San Francisco based
artist who's work is exhibited in San Francisco,
Oakland, Los Angeles and New York. Donna creates
large-scale drawings using photo based imagery to
explore social issues. Kam sees our culture as one
that is concerned with economic prosperity in spite
of the consequences. Through media’s relentless
messaging, we are encouraged to consume as a way
of defining ourselves, while the environment
becomes filled with waste. Inspired by stories
gleaned from news articles often relaying tragic
current events, Kam’s “Datelines” series represents
the psychological tension and potential dangers
of contemporary life amidst a backdrop of material
