Members of the jury will select the finalists and winner of the $50,000 prize
through a two-tiered process that begins in January. The 2013 jurors are:

  *Karlota Contreras-Koterbay, Curator at Slocumb Galleries in Johnson City,
    Tennessee.
  *Jeanne Klein, Collector and Advisory Council Member of the Harry Ransom
    Center at The University of Texas.

The Hunting Art Prize, which is open to artists throughout Texas who are at
least 18 years of age, is historically the most generous annual award in North
America for painting and drawing.

Entries are judged through an evaluation of digital files, where jurors select
individuals to move on to the second tier. Those chosen as finalists are
asked to submit the original artwork represented by their digital file for
consideration in the selection of the winning piece.

The 2013 winner will be announced at the Hunting Art Prize gala on May 4 in
Houston.

contribution on behalf of the competition to New Danville, a self-sustaining,
