700 artists from 35 countries entered the competition for the 3rd International Evard Prize. 88 artist positions were finally selected and presented in a group exhibition.
A renowned expert jury decides on the winner of the prize. The 2013 jury consisted of the collector and museum founder Marli Hoppe-Ritter, Ewald Karl Schrade, gallery owner and initiator of Art Karlsruhe, and the mathematician and curator Prof. Dietmar Guderian.
As part of the exhibition, an audience prize was again awarded, which went to the Swiss artist Peter Somm.
