The winners of Blizzard's most recent Student Art Contest have been announced!

In the fall of 2011, Blizzard Entertainment's University Relations and World of Warcraft teams put out the call to college and university students to submit an original 3D environment piece fit for World of Warcraft. The response from the talented and eager student community was so overwhelming, we put out the call again. This time we also asked character artists to participate.

The winners' artwork can be found below. Click on each image to enlarge it.
