The eighth Structure Prix was awarded as a tie to both Kevin Müller Cisneros and Dale Zinkowski at the end of December 2016. Instructor Colleen Barry offered the following critique:
"Both of these drawings have a very bold presence and both successfully captured the models gesture and proportion. Kevin made his drawing from the floor and convinces the viewer of that particular perspective. Dale made his drawing from an easel and did a very fine job modeling his torso. Both artists employed abbreviated modeling and good value choices. Over all these two drawings have excellent form and compression of values in the light areas. Good graphite shapes as well. Congrats guys."

This is the eighth time the Structure Prix has been awarded in the spirit of inspiring healthy competition among peers as inspired by weekly cash prizes at the Academy Julien in Paris during the 19th Century.
Kevin Müller Cisneros won the seventh prize in October 2016.
