Judges, Emma Crimmings and Anthony Fitzpatrick said of the works in the Linden Art Prize,
‘All six works are utterly exemplary in their own right, with each artist displaying a great facility and a high degree of innovation in their chosen medium, which made our tasks as judges extremely difficult. The prize winners were ultimately chosen for the emotional and conceptual depth that their works conveyed.’

> Emma Crimmings, Director, Gertrude Contemporary
