- Commemorative Medallions for the Alaska Internaitonal Piano-e-Competition first-, second-, and third-place prizewinners were designed by Fairbanks artist and College of Liberal Arts Dean Todd Sherman and Rasmuson Library graphic designer Dixon Jones. The designs were then turned into 3D models by Fairbanks artist Hannah Foss, and printed in a plastic-like material using a 3D printer provided by the University of Alaska Museum of the North. Finally, the printed medallions were provided to metalsmith and UAF art instructor Jack Finch, who used the 3D models in a lost-wax process to cast the medallions in bronze. He then plated each medallion - the first-place medallion in gold, the second-place medallion in silver and the third-place medallion in bronze
