The International Arts Festival “Moscow stars” is a combination of different creative genres at one art space.
The idea of the festival
is to show the whole range of the world art and collect all trends of contemporary culture in one place.
Works of 14 art genres in 28 categories are submitted to the competition of the Festival.

They are: fine art; design and architecture, visual arts - animation, cinema, television, photography, vocal and instrumental groups, vocal and choral performance, choreography and dance, theater, arts and crafts.

The “Two Stars” are the symbol of the Moscow International Arts Festival. There are many individual awards in various genres of art, therefore there is a good reason to pick the two stars as a symbol which mission is to unite different genres of art. The image of two stars symbolizes for each nominee his/her own way, since every person in his/her creative activities always follows his lodestar. The award of the festival will become for each nominee a tangible embodiment of confidence in one’s own abilities and a stimulus to move on.
