Honorable mention
·        Judges note: The inventive unique figurative form intensifies the oddness of games in various life stages, and the work is fun to look at. The whole setup of the visual weight is inclined toward the left side, which speculates the winner is on the left side, but look at his eye. Tonal structures are harshly depicted to create tension between the figures. The painting is fun but makes us think about every day of our life. This makes the power of art.
