At last! Our first look behind the scenes of the John Moores 2010 is now online.
You will see judges Gary Hume, Ged Quinn and Alison Watt talking about the competition so far and footage from inside the judging room itself, with snatches of their discussions!
Fellow judges Goshka Macuga and Sir Norman Rosenthal were absent due to the ban on flights at the time because of the volcanic ash problems. Their choices were included as Reyahn King, Head of Art Galleries at National Museums Liverpool, read out their preferences during the judging process.
We also now have a John Moores 2010 Flickr set which we will be adding to over the course of the competition and exhibition.
Look out for the next behind the scenes video, which will be looking at Stage 2 of the judging, taking place in Liverpool in June.
This is where it will get really exciting, as the judges get to see the paintings 'in the flesh' to make their final choices and decide on the winner. To stay up to date, follow JM2010 on Twitter or sign up for our JM2010 blog news feed here.
