At the beginning of the year, 905 artists submitted their documents online on the STRABAG Kunstforum website at As in previous years, the applicants from Austria included a large number of artists who had already applied and brought in new works. After several weeks of pre-selection on the Internet by the seven-member international jury of experts from the participating countries, 78 artists were invited to the final selection in April 2012. Three original works per artist from the disciplines of painting, mixed media and drawing were then collected in the STRABAG headquarters in Warsaw (Pruszkow), Bucharest and Moscow and transported to Vienna. Thus 234 works in the Artlounge in Vienna's STRABAG house were judged by the main jury.
