Stunning to see so much talent on one page!
Yes, I second Taina’s idea of creating more categories. Not for comparison but to go to our favorite subject matter and learn from each other. Or a publisher looking for a botanical artist… less scrolling through :) The hard part is many fall in more than one category (e.g., infographics), I’m not sure where to place them even on my own website.
It all goes back to Who, What, When, Where, Why, How. Grouping is a great idea; an excellent way to see different techniques for similar subjects.

Great idea! I also would have liked to see a very brief note about what the art was created for. Several of the pieces are a markedly different style than the "traditional" science illustration, which is fine; you create in a style appropriate to the project. It might be helpful to viewers outside our circle. Without the context, we are left to compare apples to oranges.

Hi all - Many thanks to the exhibit committee and the judges for the beautiful on-line show! Its a HUGE collection.
This is not a criticism, but I think it would be a much stronger show if the pieces were grouped by theme/subject. Think of it as arranging/hanging a show in a gallery. The way a show is arranged, the "hanging" is a separate project, and can be done regardless of whether there were entry categories or not. It's all still one show, but you might hang all the Onothology pieces in one room, the Botanicals in another, the Info-graphics in another. I think it would be a service to the viewers too, as they could look slowly at several sections and come back and see the other 3 sections later.
