Having had the honor of being asked repeatedly to judge the 3-D part of the Dakota MasterWorks, I appreciate the difficulty of picking out the prize winners from a wide variety of subjects, styles, and formats all included in one group. In larger competitions birds compete against birds, caricatures against caricatures, relief carving against relief, etc.
