IVCI announces the six laureates

Gold Medalist Jinjoo Cho

And here they are, the IVCI's six laureates in the order

they were awarded from the jurors:

Jinjoo Cho,

26, S. Korea --gold medalist

Tessa Lark,

25, U.S .--silver medalist

Ji Young Lim,

19, S. Korea --bronze medalist

Dami Kim,

25, S. Korea -- 4th place laureate

Yoo Jin Jang,

23, S. Korea --5th place laureate

Ji Yoon Lee,

22, S. Korea -- 6th place laureate

Based on the

principal criterion for excellence I've been propounding on these pages, I

would only have reversed the positions of the gold medalist (Cho) and the fifth

place laureate (Jang) to be fully content with the juror's rankings.
