Open to all artists from around the world, aged 16+, By George! encourages discussion about independence; its effect on humanity, and the sacrifices made for it through the years.

Submissions will be judged by a panel of acclaimed artists and critics led by Jason Karas together with Diana Jaquillard, Connie Augoustinos, Niki Sperou, and Fotis Kapetopoulos.
