Values of the Olymp’Arts

"Beauty will save the world!" - Dostoïevski 1821-1881

Our values are the unparalleled criteria and specificity of the Olymp'Arts.
Like Dostoievski, we believe that it is the combination of universality, non-violence and harmony that makes the beauty of an artwork.
Taken separately, the powers of these 3 values are insufficient.
For the first time, an artistic gathering will impose these humanist values in an exhaustive way to its artists.
This is an unprecedented artistic experience whose goal is to provide the greatest amount or jubilation and immediate joy, without requiring any prior knowledge, forgetting its own cultural influences. It’s a personal challenge!
If this subjective experience is shared by a large number or people, it will be truly universal.
The values are the most important criteria for an artist to be selected: to imagine what another artist from a very different culture may consider as a beautiful work.
What is common to humanity in beauty and harmony? This is a unique experience and the answer will be given by the artists.

OLYMP'ARTS 2023

OLYMP'ARTS Goodwill Ambassador

The OLYMP'ARTS were created to take up the artistic competitions initiated in ancient Greece, in 566 BC.
In ancient Greece, artists from all fields gathered every four years to compete in poetry, sculpture, and other artistic projects.

OLYMP'ARTS 2023 enables the participating artists to express the values that belong to all of humanity:
Beauty, Universality, Aesthetics, Harmony, and Non-violence.

Theme: Environment and Energy

Environmental and energy are the two major issues facing humankind in the 21st century. Participants are required to create works around this theme and express their concern for environmental and energy issues as well as the destiny of humankind from the unique perspective of artists.

Criteria

We invite all candidates to read with great attention the imposed values which must imperatively be respected as closely as possible. It is the respect of these values that will give you the greatest chance of being selected.

*No clear political affiliations
*No explicit religious or racial discriminations
*No explicitly pornographic images
*No violent and aggressive contents
*Should match the theme

Public Voting (Free participation)

We have often observed that professional juries, although their competence cannot be called into question, are too often influenced by their own preferences, their culture or by the "fashions" of the societies to which they belong. This is why their judgments are sometimes contrary to those of the public. And we believe that nothing can be more universal than the thousands of public voices emanating from all countries which will thus express the emotions and the harmony that they will feel when watching or listening a work of art.

The OLYMP'ARTS 2023 will use artificial intelligence big data technology and intelligent voting system to ensure fair and impartial voting by technological means.
All personal information of the entries will be hidden, and the public, artists will vote anonymously.
The OLYMP'ARTS awards will be voted on by the world public.
The world public who participate in the voting will receive an OLYMP'ARTS 2023 digital commemorative medal specially produced by the organizing committee.
