Montreal, October 17, 2002 - The Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science

and the program for organizations from emerging regions. Its international
jury examined 103 of the projects, selecting 19 to benefit from the
Foundation's programs for organizations. Of the projects chosen, six are
from Canada and three from the United Kingdom. Other projects also come from
Brazil, Colombia, Ghana, Latvia, Peru, the Netherlands, Sweden and the
United States.

Besides Daniel Langlois, the jury included Sarah Cook (Canada/U.K.), Daniel
