Intro
The Mari Funaki Award features a large number of European makers. But shifts are happening, and if the breadth and range of entries submitted in 2016 is any indication, exciting practice is sprouting in some surprising places. Alongside entries from Europe, Australia and North America, we were thrilled to receive applications from Central and South America, South Africa, the Middle East and many regions of the Asia Pacific.

In total, 413 entries were received from 48 countries.
