The artwork for WDP 2013 was created by Anne-Lise Hammann Jeannot. Jeannot describes her work as such: "Since my work borders on abstraction, I have attempted in this painting, to translate the idea of a stranger by a silhouette painted only with grays, deliberately separate from the other colors because of the fact that, in essence, it is different. Playing with lines and lighter colors - nearing on white, I have attempted to represent light, to include the character in this light that comes from above, from the sky, travelling through space to encompass the stranger. Equally the light shines forth from the group, symbolized by shapes or stones in the lower part of the painting. A circle is created and it welcomes the character. I wanted the entire scene to be bathed in a warm and colorful atmosphere, and so I used colors to demonstrate the festive nature, the impact of the encounter, the openness to others."
