include it in future exhibition projects, 
according to the curators' criteria in each case. 
Furthermore, the awarded work will be considered 
to be included in the LOOP Collection and its 
author will receive a 5.000 ¤ prize.

In addition, the 10 finalists + 1 finalist voted 
by the audience will be featured in an 
exhibition, at the former Estrella Damm beer 
factory, included in the program of LOOP 
Barcelona 2015.

opportunity to enjoy the works in an exhibition 

With the aim of fostering a space for the
