After a first selection, a number of applicants are called to interview in the spring, usually in April. The selection is made through the evaluation of submitted digital portfolios with samples of artistic work, a research project with a research question, a personal statement and a letter of recommendation as well as telephone interviews. Justification for the jury's decision is not given and the decision cannot be appealed.
