Open Eura­sia-2017

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - CULTURE AND ARTS -

Fa­mous nov­el­ist Isajon Sul­ton took the prize at the pres­ti­gious in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion Open Eura­sia-2017, which was held in the Swedish cap­i­tal Stock­holm.

The re­sults of Open Eura­sia-2017 con­test were summed up in Stock­holm. The win­ners of the open lit­er­ary com­pe­ti­tion in four cat­e­gories «Il­lus­tra­tion», «Video», «Trans­la­tion» and «Lit­er­ary work» were 20 con­tes­tants from 8 coun­tries. The com­pe­ti­tion was held in the frame­work of the VI In­ter­na­tional Lit­er­ary Fes­ti­val «Open Eurasian lit­er­a­ture fes­ti­val & Book Fo­rum».

In 2017, their work for the con­test «Open Eura­sia-2017» filed more 1100 par­tic­i­pants from 37 coun­tries of the world. Ear­lier, the awards cer­e­mony for the win­ners of the Open Eurasian Lit­er­a­ture Fes­ti­val & Book Fo­rum took place in Kyr­gyzs­tan, Kaza­khstan and the United King­dom.

One of the bright fea­tures of moder­nity is the polyphony of mod­ern lit­er­a­ture, the lack of a sin­gle style, a sin­gle leader. «One can not re­gard the mod­ern lit­er­ary process as one-line, one-level,» says the fa­mous critic A. Ge­nis. The or­ga­niz­ers of the com­pe­ti­tion, in­spired by the state­ment of Ge­nis, de­cided to pub­lish a book of all 3 prize-win­ners in the cat­e­gory «Small Prose» as the main prize of the Open Eura­sia-2017 con­test.

Prize-win­ners in this cat­e­gory were Isajon Sul­ton from Uzbek­istan. His work «Hazrati Hizr Izi­dan» («Fol­low­ing the Traces of Saint Hizr») be­came one of the best in the «Small Prose» nom­i­na­tion.
