It’s time to announce the winners of the fourth stage of the Step by Step International Watercolor Contest.
We received more than 450 applications from watercolor artists from 60 countries of the world for the third season of the competition.
Dear friends, thank you for your outstanding work and your constant interest in our project!
We want to point out one extremely important detail. A high level of professionalism distinguishes the works in the third season, and the quality of all photos is simply at the highest level. Still, the most important thing is the number of works with a description of the steps.
More than 80% of applications we received with a detailed description of all the steps. You give a unique opportunity to understand and feel exactly how you create your work. These are great tips and descriptions that are absolutely invaluable.
We thank you for sharing your experience and analyzing your steps in such detail. All this information will definitely remain in the history of the project on the catalog pages or the book Golden Edition.
In the last ten days, members of the distinguished jury have chosen the winners of the stage. I want to remind you that voting takes place through the Google voting form, in which each member of the jury gives each work from 1 to 10 points. Voting takes place independently and individually. after receiving all the votes, we calculate the total amount of points for each participant and thus get the winners at each stage.
The winners at each stage are from 3 to 5 artists. After all, every work is magnificent and unconditionally deserves a victory.
We want to add that this year we decided to establish several Honorable Mentions, the nominees for which will remain secret.
We will announce the laureates of all awards and prizes at the award ceremony for the third season of the Step by Step competition, which will take place during the festival in Gdansk — 20-22 August 2021.
