Jury impressed by the standard of entries
The members of the panel were genuinely impressed with the quality of the work they received: “To choose the winners was rather difficult as all the cases showed beautiful parts and details,” explains Gonzalo Zubiri (Argentina). Oliver Brix (Germany) confirms: “It was fun and very interesting to see the different workflows and concepts behind the cases.” Dr Jiang Shan (China) emphasizes the inspiration involved in many cases: “Because creation begins from perfect imitation, being a member of the panel for the IPS e.max Smile Award was a great opportunity for me to get inspired for my own work, too.”
