The group of mystery judges visited hundreds and hundreds of Artist Open Houses around East Sussex over May weekends (Brighton, Hove, Ditchling, Rottingdean, Woodingdean, Firle, Lewes, Newhaven).

The judges got the shortlist down to 12 open houses.

To order a dog with clothes is an additional cost, prices will be calculated on request.
