“All are One” is the theme of the art prize and is one of inclusion and connection.
The prizes are:
1st prize $2500, 2nd prize $1000, 3rd prize $500, NEW: Print Makers prize $500
and People’s Choice award.
Our theme was inspired by Galatians 3:28
“There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus”
And by Pope Francis:
‘Everything is connected. Concern for the environment thus needs to be joined to a sincere love for our fellow human beings and an unwavering commitment to resolving the problems of society.’
