Award 2019

The Open Call for the Social Art Award 2019 under the topic “We are the People – Peaceful Revolutions” was closed on December 15, 2019. We are very impressed by 558 submissions that were contributed by artists coming from 65 countries across all continents. 

The winners of The Social Art Award 2019 are Narcissa Gold (USA), Melinda Mouzannar (Lebanon) and Bogna Grazyna (Poland/Germany). The Honorary Mention goes to Kingson Kin Sing Chan (Hong Kong/UK). 

Below you find the artworks, that passed the initial jury round. The public voting took place till 30 December and is a tool to give more public visibility to the topic and the artworks. It does not replace the final jury judgment. There were two wildcards for the most voted artworks that entered the final shortlist

The focus diversity of applications shows that artists are active in the multi-faceted fields of socially engaged art reflecting on wars, genocides, femicides, traumata, violence against refugees, children, women, men, disabled people, LGBTIQs, animals. They share feelings for the planet and its living species, but also showing hopelessness due to complex crises be it climate change (e.g. in regard to water pollution), capitalism, corruption, a violation against human rights, nature, protected national parks. Many of the artists are constantly trying to give a voice to the poorest or empower unheard social groups.

It’s not only about peaceful revolutions, but it’s also about feeling a deep connection and showing love and respect for each other.
Thank you all for sharing your great and inspirational work and look at all the great contributions!

Description:
Majestic good power quietly observes the life of a human. The Angel peacefully closed his eyes, because the house, garden-beds and the farm are in order. Now everything is fine. The abundance of God erupts through the Gift, 170x110 cm, acrylic on canvas, 2018. How can art catalyze change?: Our world is changing. More and more people start noticing that the time goes by faster, the wishes come true, and the thoughts materialize. Fortuitous turns of events and non-coincidence meetings started to happen more often. The world began to hear us. The world began to answer to every our thought, either full of joy or sadness. The space began to vibrate. We stand at the crossroads – to live as we used to, and feel how the new world puts obstacles before us, or find the courage to look inside of our souls and hit the trail towards what’s inside without looking back. Start the journey for our inner light. And this journey starts with the moment of pure creation - the art.
