2009: Szpilman Award - Building up a legend!
2009 is full of superlatives: 375 participants from 42 countries fight for the
Szpilman Award, a new high-score. Also the jury grows, the team welcomes
three new members. Trapped four days in a country house in Plau (thanks,
donators!) the jury is very happy to nominate the best seven. Once again
discussions and fights, finally members come to a result and designate the
winner: Hank Schmidt in der Beek from Germany! Congratulations! - Now
it's time to continue this quite active season, Szpilman Award tours around,
seven shows are presented in Europe and Middle East. In addition the fresh
launched blog Potz!Blitz!Szpilman! evolves into a vast archive, all about
ephemeral art from the 1960's till today. 'It's great to see!', press says.
