Awards Of Excellence 2022
Dear Visitors, welcome to our Awards Page.
This year's Orthodox Arts Festival's Excellence Certificates 2022 will be given to all the artists who have shown exceptional skill and piety. We think that great artists exist in many fields, therefore we invite all artists of all ages and career paths to contribute work, whether they are students, graduates, full-time or part-time, amateurs or professionals.
**This year, voting will take place online and will be accessible to the general public through our specially designed Voting Forms.
As a result, everyone is eligible to vote.
Our Voting Panel will mark all the Votes entered for each award and present the results.
The highest-scoring entry in each category will be selected for the award **(Please note that it isn't certain that all categories will get an award since certain categories might have only a few competitors.)
Each Award will be followed by an Award Certificate.
Recipients of Fine Art & Iconography Awards will be invited to showcase their works exclusively online, where Chanters, Authors & Poets, Filmmakers will receive free of charge promotion of their work online for a year.
This year, the following categories are competing for Awards:
Church Music & Chanting
The winners will be announced online approximately one to two week after the event has officially ended.
For further information contact us.
**PS: We gave an inner battle in our decision to offer Awards of Excellence to reward Orthodox Artists for all their 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 them but instead to support their 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. We 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.
Dear Visitors, we are delighted to provide you
with the names of the Orthodox Arts Festival Awards of Excellence Winners 2021
in each competing category.
