Semifinalist for the Golden Turtle Awards!

I am proud to announce that three of my works {below} have been selected to advance as semifinalists to the finalist judging round of the international Golden Turtle Awards! I was told there were almost 1,000 artists that entered work, and that my work was currently ranked among the top 300.


The Golden Turtle awards are the largest international eco-cultural educational project, carried out in Russia. They include various creative competitions aimed at identifying the best works and projects demonstrating the beauty and harmony of wild nature. Moscow's annual Golden Turtle Wildlife Festival showcases the best works chosen from the competition, as well as other projects aimed at preserving wildlife. Following completion of the Moscow Festival, the works embark on an exhibition tour throughout Russia and other countries.


In January and February 2013, the Wildlife Festival "Golden Turtle" was held at the Central House of Artists in Moscow, and gathered more than 120,000 visitors.
