Part of the judges statement for the award; "Excellent technical ability combined with mood and motif makes Kasper Købke's artwork stand out from the crowd. The attention for details, the ability to see everyday objects such as historical buildings, waste and an overturned bamboo as a motif for an artwork makes Købke more than just an outstanding craftsman."
