Opening Ceremony/Prize Awarding: to be announced


For the sizable submission and a wide range of styles, the three jurors may take different angles in selecting works so that while some works may receive a vote from all three of them, the other works are recommended only by one juror. Though each one of them, residing across three time zones (Italy, USA, Taiwan), work diligently day and night, the decision is not reached within one jurorˇ¦s discretion but from the consensus reached after long deliberation and sharp debate.


We believe that each submitted work is a unique creation that embodies the sprit of the entrant and we make every effort to be impartial and not losing our objectivity in the selection process. Therefore, the jury decided after joint discussion to make the selection into three stages: primary selection, selection, and award winning listing.


As the 2009 International Art Competition is oriented a worldwide arena, the three stage selection makes the competition even more accurate and proper, manifesting our greater commitment to the 346 artists throughout the world.
