The wisdom and the experience of the [UN]RESTRICTED ACCESS jury members have spoken. After a hard week of voting, during which time jurors had to make tough decisions between the 200 uploaded entries, the semifinalists have finally been determined. Below are the 24 entries that are still in the competition for the 5 winning places. Up to an additional 5 finalists may be displayed at the Venice Biennale this Fall.

We congratulate all of the participants for the quality of projects submitted and thank them again for their participation! The second round of the jury process has begun on the 3rd of July and will last two weeks. Finalists and the Founders Award winner will be announced Tuesday, July 17 (note updated date - subject to change).
