Big Thanks to Exhibitors

We want to give special thanks to all of our exhibitors for the 2017 Melrose Creative Expo. We’ve heard from a few of that you’re interested in being exhibitors next year…we would LOVE that. Each exhibitor had something special to offer, and we appreciate you taking the time to come spend a few hours with us on a Saturday afternoon. Keep an eye out for our announcement for an open call for exhibitors in late Fall this year!

If it will help to keep the memory alive, here’s a little video:

2017 Melrose Awards

On Saturday, February 11, members of the community gathered to celebrate the Melrose Creative Expo, which kicked off with recognizing top projects created by Melrose members from the past year in the 2017 Melrose Awards. This marks the third year recognizing members’ efforts, and each passing year has shown growth–not just in the number of entries or votes, but also the range of subject matter. We’re so proud of the work our members have created and are pleased to share the work of this year’s semi-finalists:

Dale Bauer
Daniel Beran
Christopher Beverly
Brett  Clark
Stephen Jay
Joshua Johnson
James Ketant
Rupert Meghnot
Joseph Rodriguez
Kevin Watts
Ashley  Zehel

And now, it is with great pleasure that we present the category winners and grand prize winner:

Left to right: Joseph Rodriguez for Film Category, Rupert Meghnot for Game Design & Programming, Ashley Zehel for Maker, Christopher Beverly for Audio and Joshua Johnson for Photography & Graphic Design/Grand Prize.

Congratulations to the winners!

You know, if you think you have what it takes to take home a prize, be sure to start working on your project and keep an eye out for the opening of the submission period for next year’s Melrose Awards. We’ll celebrate the next Melrose Awards at the 2018 Melrose Creative Expo on February 17.
