For the first time it was set up a Selection Committee which will complement the official jury in assigning the Grand Prize for painting, the Critics Award and many other awards purchase. In addition to the exhibition of selected, the newly renovated exhibition formula also includes two sections by invitation, at a national and international level, which is not eligible for prizes in money. Finally, a room will be reserved for an important teacher of the last century, as well as they used to in the sixties, with retrospective exhibitions devoted to Atanasio Soldati, Licini Osvaldo and Mario Sironi.

A selection committee consisting of Flavio Arens, Gianluca D'Inca Levis, Alberto Mugnaini, Gianluca Ranzi, Lorenzo Respi and chaired by Alberto Zanchetta , artistic director of MAC Liss, has evaluated the material received from 171 participants.
