    Could be my fault, but that’s a very short notice, otherwise I would’ve participated…

    Is there a certain ‘preferred’ theme for this year?

      the deadline is only for the concept. a simple brief or sketch of what you have in mind along with previous work.

      the execution will have a good period of time to be done.
      and no it’s an open exhibition
