Out of the 802 artists only 359 are represented here, less then half, and only 25% of the total submitted works are shown.

In fact, we were so impressed by the wide variety of works, that we have decided to add a few new awards to next year's salon such as: Most Beautiful, Best Social Satire, Best Portrait, Most Ambitious, and perhaps a few others. In total, our number of finalists is up 16% from last year.
