The jury panel consists of three visual arts professionals with evaluating experience. Jury choices are based exclusively on artistic merit as represented on the slides submitted. No geographical, organizational or political criteria are employed in making selections. Every applicant, except the previous year's prize winners, undergoes the same anonymous, critical evaluation by our jury. However, previous year's prize winners still must comply with all other requirements, fees and deadlines.
