Awards of Excellence

Dear artists, we gave an inner battle in our decision to offer Awards of Excellence to reward you for all your efforts to bring forth works of beauty and delight for the Glory of God.
We want to make it clear that our purpose isn't to encourage vanity in you but instead to support your efforts in any way we can. 
After all, the best artist is not the one who has a good technique but a soul devoted to God. 
We are not in competition against each other but instead against our own limitations and weaknesses. I choose to believe that those awards, among all other Grace we all generously receive every day, are also coming from God through each one of us.

Each Award will be followed by an Award Certificate & a cash cheque or a quality gift set. Recipients of Fine Art & Iconography Awards will be invited to showcase their works exclusively online, where Chanters,  Authors & Poets will receive free of charge promotion of their work online for a year.

 Our judges' panel (all of them experts in their field) will mark all the entries entered for each award. The highest-scoring entry in each category will be selected for the award.

***Please note that our judges' panel will have a presentation page for their works in the festival, but they will not be awarded for it.

The winners will announced online 3 days after the festivals official ending.
