I like the winner very much. The others are surprisingly diverse.

Funny...I always thought that a portrait photographer's goal was to make his subject appear somewhat attractive.
If my assumption is correct, then I would submit that these "artists" failed miserably...as well as the panel's judgment.
I would admit that sometimes the subject matter creates a chasm that any artist cannot dig fast enough to extricate himself from the pit.      ;D

Hi,

Not really. A painting or other picture of a person, especially the head and shoulders, is all that's required to qualify. Of course, when shot in commission, making the subject look favorable may help getting paid, but it's more about capturing 'character' and personality. 

Cheers,
Bart
