Fiat Lux Annual Maker's Competition

The 6th Fiat Lux Annual Maker's Competition is now closed! Congratulations to DMD Metal for taking the throne! Our theme for 2020 was Pope Joan, legendary genderqueering female to male presenting woman who posed as a boy to become the Medieval Catholic world's most powerful person. Peruse the submissions below to explore!

The Ipso Facto by Ali Munn


This year we explore the legend of Ioannes Septimus, Pope Joan, a woman who ascended to Medieval Europe's papal throne keeping her sex a secret the entire way. With a killer roster of artists, each one-of-a-kind piece is their unique interpretation of this historical legend.


Voting is now closed but here's how it works for those of you wanting to get in on this action next year. When you vote - that's free! - we enter your name into a raffle drawing for the winning competition piece! That's right, you vote & you have a chance to win a one-of-a-kind miniature, wearable work of art with an incredible story from one of your favorite artists, no purchase necessary. But! If you also purchase 300$ on our website in February, we'll give you two extra entries to the raffle. Then we announce the winners on March 1st!
