As you may recall, London took part in the Art of Protest Contest with the art installation "Paper against Peace" and the Awards Ceremony took place yesterday in the Shekhawati sim.
It started with a beautiful concert of Indian Classical Sitar and Tabla play by VK and Nik.
Some of the participating artists in this Contest included Betty Tureaud, CaraMia Quan, Corcosman Voom, Eupalinos Ugajin, Hugo Krell, Noni Abeyante, Pol Jarvinen, Queen Bish, Riali Sandalwood, Secret Rage, Silene Christen and Sisi Biedermann and London Junkers, many of them present. Both Quan Lavender, the organizer, and Veekay Navarathna, the owner of Art India and Medley Arts, did an amazing job both during the length of the exhibition (September-November) and at the Awards Ceremony! You can find a list of all the winners and photos of their artwork at Quan's Travelogues.
The 3D non scripted category had three entries, CaraMia Quan with "Stop Genmanipulation", Corsosman Voom with "No, Not Me" and London Junkers with "Paper against Peace". And the first prize went to... drum roll... LONDON JUNKERS!!! London went onto the stage to receive the award of 4000L and said "thanks so much. I must say it is an honour and I want to thank you guys for the prize. I also want to thank Lizzie and dedicate this to her!! She is my inspiration!!" Awww, that was sweet!
Already back at home, I (Lizzie) took a picture of London next to the award certificate for posterity! Congrats to the winner artist! :)
