The eleven Antwerp victors were invited to California, at Mrs. Hearst's expense, to acquaint themselves with the realities of the site. At least eight came (representing six firms), and some gave newspaper interviews regarding the marvels of the site and of Californian hospitality. They returned to their offices and prepared altered and more detailed versions for the final phase in San Francisco. That second deadline was August 1, 1899; judging took place in the Ferry Building during the first week of September. The same international jury presided, except for a substitution of the English representative.
