This year's jury includes Gila Rayberg, Margo Anton and. Each member of this jury is an innovator in their own right and they display incredible technical abilities in their mosaic art. All have made their own mark in the international mosaic world. For these reasons, we feel incredibly privileged to have them as our jury this year.
