The real prize awarded all participants of ToFF's 2009 E. E. A. C. is the publicity, exposure and international recognition accorded them through the Foundation’s promotion of the Contest.

The winners are determined using a “blind” scoring process by a distinguished panel of five judges who will be announced after the contest winners have been determined. The judges are selected from an international roster of individuals in the field of the arts.

Judges will score each work on a scale of 1 to 10. Scores will be tabulated and the works with highest point totals will be the winners.

HAPPY SEXUALITY
“In those days, a gay man was made to feel nothing but shame about his feelings and his sexuality. I wanted my drawings to counteract that, to show gay men being happy and positive about who they were. Oh, I didn’t sit down to think this all out carefully. But I knew — right from the start — that my men were going to be proud and happy men!"
— Tom of Finland
