The SPD-U Spotlight Shines on Kaeli Wood ... Another Repeat Winner!

We're almost at the end of our 9 Gold Medal winners from our SPD-U Spotlight Online Gallery ShowOur super-amazing team of judges had an extremely difficult job choosing the winning work, so thanks to all of you who entered and congrats on all the great work you're doing!

We'll feature our final Gold Medal winner tomorrow, then we'll showcase our Silver Medal winners next Monday. And that's not it! Because the work was so strong, we also have a 3rd category of Merit Winners, which we'll reveal next week on our SPD-U Tumblr page. So be sure to keep checking back in with us to see all the awesome work.

Today we're shining the SPD-U Spotlight on previous winner Kaeli Wood ... because all entries are seen as individual pieces, you have the chance to have 2 or more of your pieces selected as winners, and that's what happened here! See Kaeli's second winning piece larger after the jump.
