PushYourArt is the first international competition involving artistic creation and technological innovation. Theme for this year is the 3D relief.
Following the reception of more than one hundred application from all over Europe, the prestigious jury selected 10 candidates to participate in a 3-day Master Class with 3D experts and contemporary art specialists in Paris.
Film director Wim Wenders was the guest of honour of this Master Class and had a special encounter with the 10 candidates. He also gave a public conference at Palais de Tokyo on the 23rd March 2013 in front of 250 people.
On 26th March, the jury announced the results of the competition :
Cécile B. Evans, the contest winner, will have her project realised and exhibited alongside a 3D video of Mathieu Mercier, the artist sponsor of the contest, in September, 2013 at Palais de Tokyo.
Three other candidates, David Ancelin, Philipp Engelhardt and Romain Sein will have the opportunity to present their preparatory works at Palais de Tokyo.

On Tuesday, March 26th, the participants of the Master Class presented their artistic project to the jury, showing their preparatory works such as videos, sketches and mockups.
The candidates were rather anxious, as the jury would only select one project to be produced and exhibited in the Palais de Tokyo alongside a 3D video of Mathieu Mercier.
After a stormy debate, each member of the jury defending his favorite project, the jury finally took a decision.
The prizewinner, Cecile B. Evans, did not contain her joy as Mrs Christine Albanel announced the results. The 3 other nominees, Philipp Alexander Engelhardt, Romain Sein and David Ancelin also expressed their surprise and enthusiasm. Their preparatory work will be also exhibited in Palais de Tokyo in September 2013.
The Push Your Art experience is far from ending for Cécile B. Evans as she will realise her artistic project with the support of 3D experts in the coming months. The final result will be exhibited in Palais de Tokyo in September.
