The 2019 theme: "Unrealized thoughts".
The main idea of the "Unrealized thoughts " contest is to gather under one Art space roof works, that bring into the World Modern Art Interpretation, which are innovative by nature andwhichwidenboundaries of the understandable space. We want you to refer to Your inner world once again, to reconsider it in the light of experience and create such a work of Art that visualizes your unrealized power in the best way.Energy of unrealized thoughts, being caught by the frame of the canvas orcountours of the object , has extraordinary power, by the invisible magnetism it captures the viewer’s phantom and pushes it to new energy levels.Your work can be incredibly experimental and surreal, or it can be simple and graceful inrealization and use of new methods and forms of artistic storytelling, which we probably haven't seen before.
Be creative!
And at the same time, despite the fact that this competition gathers works which seek to reach boundaries of the understandable, we don't ask contestants to create works so abstract and meaningless that they are not enjoyable to watch. YOUR THOUGHT and YOUR CONCEPT and IDEA should be viewed in every work!
We want this contest to serve as a Manifesto of modern creative and innovative approach to art, and we therefore expect a variety of interpretations of the theme, both visual and verbal.


And in the course of judicial evaluation all those aspects will be taken into consideration and a fair verdict will be rendered during personal work of each of the judges.
