Selection process 
The curator group will also select participants among applicants for the open call exhibition at Grønbechs Gaard.

The group has 6 members representing various regions in Europe. The curators may come from different backgrounds within museums and education, but have all been invited because of their insight and expertise of contemporary ceramics in Europe. The curators play a vital role in the profile and organization of European Ceramic Context.

 

The ECC2016 Prizes and Jury

Two prizes will be given to two outstanding artists or artists groups, selected among the participants in the two exhibitions. A jury of three international members with expertise within the field of ceramics will go through the exhibitions before the opening and select the prize winners. The winners will be announced at the exhibition opening.
