*Details are a little thin. There was no exhibition this year (apparently due to poor entries?!) but in 2011 there was an exhibition and prize of a 2000 Euro voucher towards rental of a booth at Inhorgenta 2013 awarded to Kim Heejoo (who I was lucky enough to meet while I was in South Korea last year). In 2010 Erin Keys and I were in the exhibition, and there was no prize. Our works travelled for over a year, appearing in Florence, Inhorgenta Munich and in Poland.
