With this award the Hellenic Community “Megali Ellada” intends promoting contemporary art, not only as expression of artistic skills, but also as manifestation of a deeper understanding of the Hellenic national culture, finalised to encourage cultural exchanges and endorse cultural heritage of Greece.

Greece is indeed a country with a rich history, art and culture and therefore named birthplace of Western civilization. The culture of Greece evolved over thousands of years, dating back to Minoan and the Dorian civilisations that left, all over Hellenic territories, outstanding examples of their greatness.
