2012 New England SCBWI - Poster Showcase Contest

Third Place Unpublished Category by Marcela Staudenmaier
Talking about awesome surprises! My entry to the Poster Contest Showcase was awarded the Third Place in the Unpublished Category!

Congratulations to my friend Milanka Reardon who won the First Place with her beautiful poster; to A.P. Sabourin who won the Second Place; and to all the participants whose work was seen by dozens of writers, illustrators, authors, editors, art directors and SCBWI friends at the 2012 New England Conference this year! 

I am so grateful to my all my Instructors and classmates at RISD CE! Since I signed up for classes back in 2010, I feel that I belong to a big loving and supporting family of talented, hard working and generous people.


  1. Congratulations, Marcela! This is a beautiful image, which definitely transports the viewer to "A Whole New World". I especially love how you lead our eye from the fully colored and painted little girl, past the half colored llamas (or vicunas) to the sketchy mountains––very effective!

    1. Emilie,
