World Poetry Canada International Peace Festival 2013 Winners!




Ariadne’s Note:

It is  with great pleasure that we announce the award winners for the World Poetry Canada International Peace Festival 2013.

Each entry was nominated by one or more people, and went through a background check. The awards are based on humanitarian and peace efforts to make the world a better place.

Many of the award winners are youth. They show a wonderful commitment for peace and the respect of others. Each award winner has sacrificed to promote peace and understanding and in some instances  have shown great courage in the face of adversity.

For the first time ever, we had 10 film, doc entries. With help from our community parter Cinevolution, we were able to include the film award winners this year. The two films will be shown during the peace festival.

Please welcome the World Poetry Canada International Peace Festival 2013 Award Winners:
