The McCain illustration was published in Maariv, an Israeli newspaper, and was shown at Hanoch's solo exhibition at Sixth and I Synagogue in Washington, DC. His portrait of Keith Richards appeared in Spin magazine.

Tatsuro Kiuchi's winning image was for Sports Graphic Number magazine of Japan. The article was called, “Kazuhiro Kiyohara, The Last Superstar” by Junji Yamagiwa.
