The Olympia Awards Games of Arts and Entertainment – 12 Olympias continues to grow as seeds are now being planted in the beautiful country of the Philippines. Following the Olympia Awards mission of Unifying the cultures of the world through the Universal Language of Art and transforming the world from mind-driven to heart-driven to make the world a safe and noble place for future generations, Dr. Gellini has embarked upon a trip that is currently underway in the Philippines and he has been meeting with the Government including Mayors and Congressmen of different cities there and they are very interested in the Olympia Awards. We look forward to laying a foundation in the Philippines for the growth and expansion of the 12 Olympias to Unify the world through the Universal Language of Art. Again, the 12 Olympias include the 9 Arts of Olympia (Dance, Music, Painting, Sculpture, Literature, Theater, Film, Fashion, Culinary Arts) and 3 additional events – Olympia Humanitarian Awards, Special Olympia Awards for Artists with Special Needs and the Miss Olympia Pageant, open for entry to former and reigning pageant queens around the world and will showcase internal as well as external beauty.
