  The Anonymous Art Awards
presented by Miklos Legrady
along with Those Who Wish To Remain Anonymous.

The Anonymous Art Awards will celebrate and honor those artists
who have shown excellence this year but wish to remain anonymous.

The art community, while an endearing crowd,
like all groups will enforce their own sense of social conformity.
Some artists on the other hand are shy, socially inept, or badly confused.

Anonymous art could be more interesting than art history; it's a known fact.
This is an opportunity to let your imagination soar
to what those anonymous works would be, could be...
if we could but see them.

Awards will be presented in all media categories.
Unfortunately, the artwork could lead to indentifying the artists,
so no work may be entered in the competition or shown to the public.

As the winners are anonymous, there'll be no need for prizes,
nor walking up to the podium under the glare of spotlights.

In fact, since the winners won't show up and no work is entered or chosen,
there's no need for expensive award presentations,
which have been very successfully cancelled.

Thank you all for participating.
