This award will be presented to the artist who continues to show high standard of work, develop his / her own style and master of their skills in the chosen medium and technique,  thereby become an inspiration to our future generation of new emerging artists.

I am honoured to be in a position to add yet another award to our list  that will be presented to GLOBALIZATION ICAS members participating in our monthly theme exhibitions. We are fortunate to have Internationally renowned artist’s Mona Youssef as a member of GICAS, who has been with us from the beginning. Over the past year Mona has been an active member of our organisation as one of the juror on the panel adding valuable constructive comments and completing her task by scoring each entry for our monthly theme exhibitions.  Recently in an exhibition at Chianciano Art Museum Binnale Italy 2013, Europe Mona was presented with Leonardo Award from over 500 artworks entries covering 30 Nations for her realism painting title: “Heart of Winter”.  I am delighted to choose this appropriate time to announce our NEW prestigious award that serve as two fold reminder to all who are presented with this award.
