Thanks to everyone who entered our Digital Art Contest. We had a lot of really great entries. Here are the winners:


Due to the tight printing deadline of our program book, there are some errors in the book, specifically in the Digital Art Contest Winners page. Three winners weren’t given credit, one entry has the wrong artist name and the three t-shirt winners are mislabled as badge art winners. The above image is the page as it is supposed to be. We apologize to the artists who were affected by this error.


SacAnime is proud to welcome Keisha Castle-Hughes to SacAnime Summer 2017. Keisha plays Obara Sand in the Game of Thrones. She was also the lead in Whale Rider and had roles in Star Wars: Episode III and The Walking Dead.
