Introducing Zvyagintseva, the winner of the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2018, the jury stated: "Anna Zvyagintseva captured the attention of the jury through a well-refined and precise formal language. In a very discrete way, her poetics unravel an understated political dimension to the viewer. She defines drawing as a form of open writing that expands into sculpture and space. Her method records the movement of bodies and draws from the everyday, both personal and collective. We recognize her consistent practice and thoughtful artistic potential."

Commenting on works by the first special prize Mykola Karabinovych, the jurors said: "The jury was struck by the outstanding work by Mykola Karabinovych. We recognize its minimal and simple formulation that contradicts the complexity of a historical and yet intimate narrative. It is a dedicated performative gesture turned into a humble transient monument occupying the memory of the repressed, regardless of their ethnicity or nationality."

Awarding Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Himey, the second special prize, the jury stated: "We recognize the seductive professional visual language of the film by Yarema Malashchuk and Roman Himey. It captures real people in a daily situation with a particular eye for detail, slowly enticing the viewers into a surprising experience with an unexpected twist that takes them from reality to the threshold of the sublime."

The public choice prize of UAH 25,000 (approximately $1,000) was awarded to Alina Kleitman for her work "Ask A Mom." The winner of this nomination was chosen based on the results of voting by the PinchukArtCentre visitors held from February 22 to April 15, 2018.

The 20 nominees for the PinchukArtCentre Prize 2018 were shortlisted by an independent selection committee from more than 650 applicants.
