2014 Self Portrait Contest Winners

Over Eleven Hundred Entries in our 2nd Annual Self Portrait Contest

We had a wonderful second year of our Self Portrait Contest which ran from January 6th, 2014-April 6, 2014. This year we were more than happy to receive 1156 completed entries and the majority of them were very, very good. It was incredibly difficult for our panels to choose the best ones, however, with your help voting on Facebook, you helped us choose the best ones. Our panel of professional artists chose the rest. 

The top 3 places win spectacular prizes including:

  • First Place Grand Prize: $2000 Shopping Spree on Jerrysartarama.com
  • 2nd Place Prize:             $850 eGift Card to Jerry's Artarama
  • 3rd Place Prize:              $400 eGift Card to Jerry's Artarama
  • Honorable Mentions:      $25 eGift Card to Jerry's Artarama (x30)

Now it's time to announce the winners. Like I said, we had an incredibly difficult time judging all 60 of our finalists with the top 33 spots winning prizes and as tough as it was, three entries stuck out above the rest. Here are our winners:

First Place

Outside Looking In by Daniel Vangeli 




2nd Place 

Waking Up From a World of Thought by Mano Sotelo




Third Place

Did You Know- Jerry's has Brand New Shout Out Videos

New advancements to website shows art supplies and attributes in use!

Did you know that the Jerry's Artarama Website now has Shoutout videos that pop up when you roll your mouse over one section of a page? Certain descriptions/keywords will launch a quick video showing one of the incredible features or attributes of our products when you simply scroll over them with your mouse on our page. They can show you how our paint spreads, how well an eraser or pencil works, whatever the best features of a product are, we can now show you them without you even having to click on anything. 

With a simple mouse scroll, you now have the power to see our products in action. This innovative new rollover video tool is just another way Jerry's is out front in our effort to bring you the best ways to experience art products before you buy them. We make shopping even more exciting by bringing you the ability to see every aspect of a product in action. 

When you see this icon you just need to scroll over the description and you will get a fully narrated video to show you how the product works.

We developed these rollovers or as we call them "Shout Outs"  to make ecommerce and product details more exciting and visual.  This new advanced way to see a very important attribute of a product demonstrates yet another way Jerry's leads the pack when it comes to innovation and help for artists. As we embark on new features and advancements we will let you know about them right here!


For example, on our page advertising Aquacover Liquid Watercolor Paper, you can see the Rollover Icon: 


When you roll your mouse over the highlighted description:

We have added them to many of our best products already such as:
