The categories are based on major sections of the vector gallery which include: Abstract, Animals, Objects, People, Scenes and Vehicles.
Nominations were received by several members of the vector art community and judged by ex Gallery Moderator $Ikue, who is also the founder of the GPA and yours truly.
