„I picked Pavlović’s photo with the man in body paint because
it is a little disturbing but completely grabs your attention. With similar swirls of paint on the man that look like the earth spirals in the poster, as well as the river and nature behind, it seems that the man, the poster and nature all become one. This succinctly expresses the verse on the poster ‚To earth with Love.’
"Pavlović’s photo with a body painted man and a river behind, is very impressive. It evokes the verse on the poster talking about the earth we love. It's just excellent! By just seeing it, everybody feels as a native. So I vote for this photo!"
Here international Jury Members in the Competition

William Andersen is currently an Assistant Professor of Studio Art and Graphic Design at the American University of Kuwait (AUK). Prior to his appointment at AUK, he was a Visiting Assistant Professor at Beloit College and a Senior Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Andersen received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago after receiving a BFA in Painting & Drawing and a Cross-School Major in Art History & Criticism from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He was awarded a Fulbright-Hays Fellowship to research Chinese art and culture in Taiwan and China before moving to Kuwait in 2008. His artwork and point have been primarily influenced by his travels between the US and Asia over the last eighteen years. During this time, he has watched as regions like the Middle East and Eastern Asia have emerged as economic and cultural forces and is fascinated by the tightening global web of economics, resource use, migration, and cultural hybridization. Because of this, the notions of globalization and hybridity are the central focus of his current artistic practice. Using a hybrid of traditional and new media approaches, his artwork often incorporates chinoiserie imagery, an interest acquired early on amid his mother’s collection of blue and white china.
