History is not necessarily always repeating itself, but to understand our present time it never hurts to look at the past. This was yet another theme that allowed for multiple interpretations. Many chose to depict historic events and characters, while others referenced to past times more spiritually. The three winners who mastered their past most sucessfully were Didier Guibert, Julien Oncete and Þorsteinn H. Ingibergsson. Congratulations!
