Congratulations to Junior BFA Photography Student An Li! After reviewing nearly 300 entries from students at nine of the country’s top art schools, LG Electronics USA today announced the finalists for its new-media art competition, “The Art of the Pixel: Powered by LG Ultra HD 4K and OLED TV.” The finalists were selected through an extensive judging process that included scoring by renowned digital artist Mark Tribe and LG experts, as well as an online popular vote.

Each student’s work was  featured on LG’s Ultra HD and OLED TVs at an exclusive, star-studded gala event in New York in September, when LG, Tribe and art enthusiast and Art of the Pixel Ambassador Neil Patrick Harris recognized all nine finalists and announced the program winners.
