I felt that the process was extremely easy because it was a non-acquisitional prize. The piece that I entered (my strongest current work) was only available as an online image so my submission would not have been possible if I had to send a physical artwork. – Steve Chmilar, 2018 Beautiful Bizarre Art Prize Honourable Mention.
