A total of 37 works from eight Ibero-American countries have been nominated. The projects were chosen from 244 submissions. The selection committee was made up of Agnieszka Kowalewska-Skowron (Poland), Loic Portier (France), Barry O’Donoghue (Ireland) Paco Rodriguez (Spain), and Zulay Rodriguez (Spain).
