Until the end of the month, wordwide teddy artist bear enthusiasts are called to vote for the URSA Awards finals. For 10 years, this international contest has been awarding the best bear artists. I am very proud to announce that Théodore and Barnabé are running! They are the only french bears in this final step of the competition.
What are the URSA Awards? It’s a reference to Ursa Major (that reminds me of something…) but it also stands for “Unparalled beauty, Rarity of vision, Style beyond compare, Artistic merit“. Each year, this american contest occurs in two online voting rounds. During the first round, you choose a bear per category, the top three bears are then qualified for the final round. During the final step, all the qualified pieces are gathered in three groups: the website visitors just get to choose their three favourite bears among the finalists, one per group.
For these URSA Awards 2015, 65 artists joined the competition and represented 21 countries! Among the 138 contestants, it was not easy to make a choice… After the first round which occured in July, Théodore and Barnabé were qualified for the finals! I have to thank all the votants who supported my bears… It is an honour for me to represent France in the winners! Indeed, all the qualified bears receive an award but it’s up to you to determine which one.
[EDIT on 10/01] Until August 31, you could vote one last time to establish the final ranking. According to the number of votes they got, Théodore and Barnabé finished second of their category. Thank you so much for your support!
Note: all you have to do is click on the “Vote Now” button below each group to access the group’s voting poll. A thank you message will confirm to you that your vote has been sent. Please take the time to vote in the three groups!
