The jury at work:

About 700 posters were exhibited, in several buldings all over Kharkov. The jury made a preselection by looking at all of them, and Jacek Mrowczyk took a picture of those on the short list with his digital camera, a Canon G1. Xiao Yong then entered them into a Powerpoint presentation on his notebook, and the final selection was made after discussion and comparison of the pictures on the monitor, sometimes going back to look at the originals.

( I'm not sure if this is the true story or somebody made a joke on me. A small label on the backside of this beauty says: Warning! The shipping cost of easter eggs might be dangerous to your financial health.)
