Gary Evans: Coordinator, Fine Arts, Museum & Gallery Studies at the School of Design and Visual Art, Georgian Collage 

Jenna Hiemstra: Curator/ Director of Programs, Craft Ontario

Note from the Jurors: "The common character between all of the works selected is excellence demonstrated in both technique and content. The jury was particularly drawn to works that pushed the expected boundaries of disciplines and media. Overall, we felt that the final selection represents a wonderful range of media and materials, as well as compelling themes and subject matter."
