Juror Hunter O'Hanian selected 50 pieces from 902 entries from 312 artists from across the United States and Canada, China, Israel, and Italy.

Three artists were awarded cash prizes:

First Prize: Darryl Lauster

Second Prize: Yixuan Cai (Los Angeles, CA)
Third Prize: Tracy DiTolla (Oakland, NJ)

In addition, Patti Jordan (Montclair, NJ) and Judi Tavill (Rumson, NJ) were awarded solo exhibitions at The Center for Contemporary Art.

When speaking about his selection process Hunter O'Hanian wrote, "I wanted to assemble a group of works which would successfully work together to make a rewarding group exhibition for the visitor. I picked works that challenged me as a viewer – including some I did not fully understand but trusted the artist was on the right track.  I wanted to present a variety of materials and processes.  I looked for pieces which reflected contemporary ideas and concepts which are on my mind – and others – daily."

Hunter O'Hanian has a long career in supporting visual arts and LGBTQ+ studies.  He is the past Executive Director of the Stonewall National Museum and Archive and the College Art Association, the largest professional association supporting art historians and visual artists in the world. He is the past board chair of the Alliance of Artists Communities, the national membership organization for artists' residency programs. Hunter graduated from Boston College and received his law degree from Suffolk University.  He is presently working on a collection of stories and images by Baltimore artist, Amos Badertscher.
