Hunting in Art Prize Winners 2005
The CIC Commission for Hunting in Art, History and Museums gives out every two years an international prize with the aim of rewarding an artist, museum or cultural organism, which puts forth the values of hunting.
This year’s candidacies were first presented at the 52nd CIC General Assembly in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The International Jury of the Commission examined them and has chosen the two winners in May in Dresden, Germany.
The awards ceremony took place at the Maison de la Chasse et de la Nature in Paris, France, on 11 October 2005.
