Founder's Statement

5000 submissions. 95 countries. 65 short listed. 15 finalists. 12 jurors.

It was an overwhelming and monumental response to the first annual London International Creative Competition. The winner pages represent the international art community’s response to an innovative showcase of creativity.  Creativity is defined as the use of imagination or original ideas, especially as it relates to the production of artistic work. The juror’s of this competition challenged the notion of creative expression and these artists have risen to the occasion.  The vision for LICC is to create multi-platform resources (web, awards show and publication) where decision-makers turn to find international artistic talent.  The list of winners are not only published in a book but lauded on our website and to the creative arts and media outlets worldwide.

With your encouragement and support, LICC has become the physical and virtual venue to promote all facets of creativity - from writing, film and installations to painting, new media and performance art.  LICC will have no boundaries as art has no boundaries.  Congratulations to the artists and salutations to the jury.
