Congratulations, dear International Exhibition of Calligraphy team! We got through to the final round of a prestigious international contest initiated by the Exhibition News publishers. The II International Exhibition of Calligraphy (Moscow, October 14 – November 14, 2009) is among the three finalists nominated the “Best International Exhibition of the Year”. We share this noble nomination with the UBM International Media (England), exhibition Food Ingredients Europe exhibition and the Reed Travel Exhibitions (Spain) with its project EIBTM (tourism industry).
The prizewinner will be announced later on in April. The awards ceremony will take place in London, on May 7. But what we are really proud of is that we are already marked with a special “Finalist” emblem.
To tell the truth, we do not really know what the jury was inspired by: be it an uncommon topic, a wide international artists team, relationships with the main clerical leaders or 72 live performances… Or maybe that was the virtual excursion around our exhibition? Or else, we might interest the jury with our beautiful calligraphy works and a fine design. Our contest package consisted of 42 pages including the show program, guide and route planner around the exhibit, feedback of many authorities and common visitors, a photo collection, etc. Just to have an idea:
Calligraphy is the art of both ideal writing and an ideal soul.
