Purchase Awards

MEAM Purchase Award

The MEAM (European Museum of Modern Art) is a museum dedicated to Contemporary Realism located at the Gomis Palace, in the middle of the streets of the Born in Barcelona, a neighborhood where culture is always present and reflects the charm of the old part of the city, an area that knows how to mix tradition and modernity, becoming a required visit for the tourists interested in Monumental Barcelona. The museum has awarded a purchase award to one of the entrants of the 16th International Salon Competition. This purchase award will be displayed in the European Museum of Modern Art on public view and has become part of the permanent collection of the museum, and therefore will always be exhibited during the months this collection is open. This award has been adjudicated by the President of the Fundació Privada de les Arts i els Artistes and Director of the MEAM, Mr. Jose Enrique González Rodríguez.

Enchanted Living Magazine Award

Enchanted Living, formally known as Faerie Magazine, is a quarterly print magazine that celebrates all things enchanted — from a scattering of mushrooms in an ancient forest to a sweet, scented gown made only of roses. The New York Times described it this way: "It's as though Martha Stewart's Living and Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene had a magazine baby." Founded by artist and visionary Kim Cross in 2005 and helmed by novelist Carolyn Turgeon since 2013, the magazine is a feast for the senses. Every issue features exquisite photography, recipes, original fiction and poetry, travel pieces, artist profiles, home decor, otherworldly beauty tips, craft tutorials, and much more — with a dash of enchantment sprinkled throughout. The publication reaches readers not only in its print and digital editions (including through the Faerie Mag app) but also through its massive social media platforms, with 1.6 million fans on Facebook, 342,000 on Instagram, and 85,000 subscribers to its weekly newsletter. This publication award was given to an artist whose work is entered in the Imaginative Realism Category and captures a love of fantasy and creativity. This award was juried by the magazine's editor in chief Carolyn Turgeon, art director Lisa Gill, and photo editor Steve Parke.
