Dak'Art has a permanent office (Ousseynou Wade is the general secretary) and a Scientific Council (directed by Marie José Crispin) which has selected the International Selection Committee. The International Selection Committee has then selected the artists who applied for the Biennale (to apply it's necessary to have the nationality of an African country and to fill the application form ); some members of the International Committee also selected artists from different part of the world for the Individual Exhibitions. When the works are installed the Selection Committee judges them and distributes the prizes.
