The artists, from Spain and Estonia respectively, work as a duo and were selected by a panel of international festival curators Peter Zorn from Werkleitz Festival in Halle, Germany; Arjon Dunnewind from Impakt Festival in Utrecht, Netherlands, Isabelle Carlier from Bandit Mages Festival in Bourges, France; and Gabrielle Jenks from AND festival, as well as FACT's own curator Heather Corcoran.

The panel watched around 200 videos by artists from across Europe and selected Canet and Guljajeva for their commitment to engaging work for the public realm.
