The invited experts of the "Silver Easel" contest processed thousands of submitted works in more than three hundred applications. A month of hard work before the contest was not easy for those who were choosing the future participants. One of the members of the Expert Council and the Jury was a famous Uzhhorod artist, member of the American Association of Portraitists Andrii Kartashov.

It is surely interesting for us to hear the opinion of the person who watched the contest and participated in the pre-selection and evaluation of our contestants.

"I am a representative of a realistic school, but I adore, appreciate and support all areas of painting," the artist said about the process of works’ selection. The important thing is the works to be highly professional. If it is a thought, then it should be well-illustrated. If it is an interesting technique, it should be well-reproduced. You have to be yourself, as sincerity multiplied by professionalism won’t be unnoticed."

"Silver Easel" is the best platform for the development of young artists who need support, not financial as much as moral."

"Thanks to the Brovdi Art Foundation in the ancient Transcarpathian Uzhhorod, it is carried out such an explosion of creative energy, which will certainly give impetus to the further development of the participants, the city and the country. This is a true art explosion!" Andrii commented at the contest opening.

When the painting stages were completed and the Jury decided on the favourites, Andrii noted: "The voting system is quite effective: I voted not for the participants, but for the work. The most difficult thing was to choose the winners in the "Improvisation" nomination – there were various techniques, ideas, means of expression: plastic, painting, graphics, even text! The contestants showed a very high level in all categories in both the manner of performance and ideological content."
