About the contest

The main idea of the contest was not to duplicate or replace the previous events, but create something new and original. That is to go beyond the student olympiad and arrange for young artists a true “adult” contest – with fully fledged programme, national representation, distinguished academic jury, with the podium and nominations as well as memorable awards and prizes. And, moreover, with the obligatory publication of the catalogue of the contestants’ art works. It was the way of “Silver Easel” creation...
