Each year, a satellite organization of the Visual Sciences Society holds a contest for the best visual illusions of the year. Well this year's finalists have been announced and the 9th annual contest, on May 13, 2013, will showcase and debut each of these 10 new illusions that have been created and studied over the past year or so. Although these latest visual wonders won't be released by the judges until the winner is announced, we can still experience the winning illusion from each of the last 8 years.
