CRITERIA:
Artwork must fall within the following criteria:

• To go beyond means to use art media, words and/ or images in the creative process to produce artworks that explore the unexplored, breaks the mold, see beyond the normal view, potential or direction reflecting the adventurous, explorative representation of the creative collective.
