A total of forty – nine artists submitted seventy-two works. The exhibition saw a great deal of interest from the local youth, with individuals as young as 14 years old submitting pieces.
Commenting on the competition, Minister Linares explained that the quality of the work continues to rise every year.

They seem determined not to focus on the issues and properly explain their policy.
