    Cool Persian Oscars

    Where British have BAFTA; Americans have OSCAR; Persians went beyond the imagination and formed WAALM!

    The World Academy of Arts, Literature, and Media - WAALM supports, develops, and promotes dramatic and fine arts, creative writing and poetry, as well as professional journalism and media productions by identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners, and benefiting the public.

    WAALM confers the most outstanding people of Arts, Literature, and Media from all over the world for their contribution and dedications in their practice and industry with a mystic Persian Golden Lioness Award statuette to mark their efforts and celebrate their success.

    While The World Academy of Arts, Literature, and Media is the awarding body, the Persian Golden Lioness Awards is the official title to its event.

    The Persian Golden Lioness Awards (Formerly Persian Academy Awards International) had its first successful annual awards in the beautiful Grand Royal Ballroom of Budapest where over 25 artists, musicians, and scholars of Persia and Hungary were honored.



    Among the Persian Awardees of 2005 we can name Masoud Assadolahi, the well known Actor and Stage Director.



    Niloofar Beyzaie, Playwright and Stage Director who currently lives in Germany.



    Sattar, the Persian Classic and Pop Vocalist.



    Houshmand Aghili, the contemporary Classic Vocalist



    Muhammad Heidari , the Classic Composer and instrumentalist




    And Akbar Golpayegani, the Classic Vocalist of Excellence.


    In category of Media, Voice of America, VOA – Persian and BBC – Hungarian Radio and Website were the awardees.



    I was been informed that the 2nd Annual Persian Golden Lioness Awards is getting organised and soon the names of the awardees will be published. We have been informed that there will be over 6 different nationalities participating the 2nd annual awards and there will be approximately 50 Awards to confer which makes the WAALM truly an Oscar for Persians and prominent artists and scholars of other nations.

    Hungarian Super Stars, The Academy Winners of the 2nd Annual Persian Golden Lioness A

    Hungarian Super Stars, The Academy Winners of the 2nd Annual Persian Golden Lioness Awards

    With a deeply rooted culture and civilization that spans over more than two millenniums, Persians as a community both inside and outside their motherland have greatly contributed to the Arts and intellectual emancipation of their contemporaries. Paradoxically the turmoil's of history and exile have also enriched an introspection on ourselves as a community and on our responsibility as Artists, Writers or Intellectuals as well as citizens of our country of adoption to play a part in a dialogue of civilizations so necessary in our tormented World. It is to respond to the growing desire of not only recognition but also encouragement of Persian Artists, Writers and people of culture Worldwide as well as that of their colleagues in their new country of adoption that The World Academy of Arts, Literature, and Media – WAALM ® took an unprecedented initiative to support, develop, and promote the dramatic and fine arts, creative writing and poetry, as well as professional journalism and media productions by identifying and rewarding excellence, inspiring practitioners, and benefiting the public. Thus it has created the Persian Golden Lioness Awards® which is in its second year of existence has no other ambition than to encourage and promote men and women who through their work subscribe to the humanistic values and love of beauty.

    The board of governors and by authority of the same on recommendation of the Academy, hereby confirm the nomination of:

    Eva Marton: An Award of Excellence in Music Category (Best Soprano)
    www.evamarton.com/
    Internationally celebrated as one of opera's greatest singers on stage today, soprano Eva Marton enjoys a seemingly endless list of top engagements in practically every major opera house in the world. She is well known and much admired for her unique ability to encompass the widest possible repertoire with her rich and powerful voice. She is equally at home in the dramatic Italian repertoire of Verdi and Puccini as with the German roles of Wagner and Strauss. With over 35 years active performance on opera stages around the world, Eva recorded over 30 remarkable albums in her carrier.

    NOX: An Award of Excellence in Music Category (Best Pop Band)
    http://www.nox.hu/

    Nox was the name of an ancient goddess who was believed to be the queen of the night. On the first album of Nox, the infinitely rich tunes and lyrics of Hungarian folk music are blended with the electronic music of the third millennium. This is how we build a bridge between the ancient Hungarian pentatonic scale with the world of contemporary music. The front man of the band is the acclaimed Nagy Tamás who is considered to be one of the greatest talents in Hungarian folk dancing. The lady by his side, Péter Szabó Szilvia, has an exceptionally beautiful voice; She was discovered by the producer. Now she has a great chance to prove her talent as a singer in the band.

    Nox is now well-known around the country. In the autumn of 2003, their second album ‘Magic Spell' came out in Hungary, Romania, and Slovakia at the same time. It was a real step forward without compromising the band's sound, and it featured the band's own songs rather than cover versions. It may sound like it contains obscure folk songs or pieces from a musical or rock opera, but don't be deceived: all of its tunes were composed in 2003. The musical style did not change, essentially, but it has become more complex. Traditional and contemporary instruments are superbly blended and while, the lyrics leave behind the simple world of folk songs they retained their poetic touch. The creative team behind the behind the band has paid special attention to giving Nox a unique image that stands out in the world of Hungarian Pop Music.







    Princess An Award of Excellence in Music Category (Best Instrumentalists)
    princess.musichello.com/

    The Princesses of Violin have enjoyed a phenomenal success story since their debut in summer 2001. Their albums have sold an amazing 100,000 copies in Hungary; they played in Holland, France and Germany and were guests guests at the birthday party of the Princess of Naples. They also shined live at the United Arab Emirates and toured in Mexico and played a New Years Eve concert at the Grand Casino of Monte Carlo. Their second album was released all over Europe, and by that their schedule was so busy that they flew to their signing sessions in a helicopter. They have been awarded many times by the music industry, magazines, but most importantly they attract a full house and receive a standing ovation at every concert.


    Their updated classical music finds its way to the heart of the young and elderly alike, making Princess a wonderful act all over the world. The two elements of their success are the three of them and their music..

    Zsolt Pozsgai An Award of Excellence in Literature Category (Best Playwright)
    www.szinhaz.hu/pozsgai/

    Zsolt Pozsgai was born in 1960 in Pécs, Hungary. He is a freelance writer, playwright, and stage director.

    This is a tale of four Iranian doctors. There’s an Iranian shopkeeper in here too, but that would have made the title too long. Of course, the tale isn’t so much about the doctors (or the shopkeeper for that matter) as it is about you. Yes, you.

    The first pair of doctors
    This story was told to me by my wife who witnessed the event. In a large hospital – it doesn’t matter in which of Iran’s cities - a child is crying with pain. He had just had his tonsils removed. The child’s father does his best to calm the boy without success. So he asks the two male doctors what can be done to ease the child’s pain. The doctors take in the father’s clothes and thick accent, and mentally mark him down as a ‘dehati’. “Bring ice cream!” they say.

    So the father leaves the hospital, and after a long while returns with the fanciest ice cream he could buy. It must have been more than the man could afford. With pride, the father shows the ice cream to the doctors. They take one look at the pistachio-filled confection and launch a barrage of insults at the father, utterly humiliating him. The Ice cream is no good, they say. It has nuts in it. Then they take and eat the ice cream, as the child continues to cry.

    In London my Iranian friends would talk of a shop that sold Iranian goods - gaz, advieh, torshi and so on. They all said that the Iranian shopkeeper would deliberately overcharge his Iranian customers, but didn’t dare do that to the occasional English customer for fear of the trading standards regulations.

    When I said that was bizarre, normally it’s the other way around, the reply was: “that’s typical Iranian for you!” It doesn’t matter if the shopkeeper really overcharged Iranians, it is the wide perception that nobody can rip-off an Iranian like another Iranian that is important. I could add other anecdotes, and I bet you could also. So I am left wondering about a proud nation with a heritage of thousands of years that has such a hard time putting community above self.

    The second pair of doctors
    I was recently privileged to be invited to Budapest, Hungary, to receive an award for my book. The “Persian Golden Lioness Awards” ceremony was organized by the second pair of doctors in this tale, Dr Abdi and Dr Dorbayani. The awards celebrated the achievement of international Iranians, such as Omid Djalili, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Azar Nafisi, Kayvan Mashayekh, Sattar, Bruce Bahmani, and others. It also recognized the contribution of non-Iranians like Monika Jalili, Vanessa Redgrave and Jane Robinson, to Persian-related culture.

    In all it was a celebration of the cultural achievements of the Iranian diaspora. It helps counter the all-too-common TV image of Iranians all being ranting fanatics. I have lost count of the number of times an American tries to understand that my wife is Iranian when she conducts herself as any businesswoman. Many have a hard time reconciling the TV image with individuals who don’t fit that image. Anything that promotes the image of Iranians as individuals, some of whom are extremely successful in the international arena, is a good thing.

    By putting on such an event, raising the profile of international Iranians, the doctors Abdi and Dorbayani put their community above themselves. Now if you wear a cynic’s cap for a moment, you may say that it was not purely about the community, it was about raising the profile of the doctors and their institute, the WAALM/IFSI, in Budapest. To that I would reply that if you put as much into an event as they did, you would deserve some coverage and raised profile too. Some may dream of putting on such an event, but very, very few will see it through to reality. The hard work and sacrifices they made are an example to all, especially to the Persian diaspora, for it is just such placing of community above self that is the key to healing the past and creating a hopeful future for Iranians everywhere.

    So what is the point of this tale? I learned that the organizers of the Persian Golden Lioness Awards sank a good deal of personal money into this venture. I learned that they only found one financial backer. Yet they still went ahead. They still put their community above themselves. As thoughts turn to the next ceremony, they will need backing in cash and public interest. Without the support of the Iranian diaspora, the event may fade away or become just another generic international award. So that brings me back to you. If you care about the image of your community, maybe you should back the doctors, or lobby for support on their behalf. It really is up to you.

    The 2006 WAALM event in Budapest was more than just one evening of fun. The organizers of the event, Dr. Dorbayani and Dr. Abdi has put together a program that included an orientation dinner for everyone to meet and a fun tour of the beautiful city of Budapest.

    It was wonderful getting to know the other award recipients and spending time with likeminded people who were all interested in arts and culture. The great Omid Djalili and Bruce Bahmani certainly kept us entertained and it was a real pleasure and honor to be in the presence of people like Ahmad Reza Baharloo and Sattar.

    BUDAPEST, November 14th, 2006 – Business partners Dustin Ellis and Shabnam Rezaei were both rewarded for their contribution to Persian culture at the WAALM awards in Budapest in late October.

    Dustin Ellis, the writer/director of “Babak and Friends – A First Norooz” won best director for animation. Dustin dedicated his award to his grandfather Hassan Shahbaz, the founder of Rahavard Magazine. He also thanked partners Mastaneh Moghadam, Aly Jetha, Shabnam Rezaei and his mother Guity Shahbaz, who encouraged him to make Babak. “ I am really proud of everyone involved in this project. We have such a talented team and it is because of my core animation team, people like Alfred Gimeno, Joe Banaszkiewicz, John Dymer and many others that I am here today,” commented Dustin.

    Shabnam Rezaei, who founded the online magazine PersianMirror, received the award for best electronic magazine by the academy. She thanked her parents and noted that the website serves artists and writers from around the world. The readership of PersianMirror has grown dramatically to 80,000 unique visitors per month from around the world. When asked about the site, she said, “We love to feature up and coming talent, whether they are artists, actors, musicians or athletes. I want to thank in particular, my senior team. Afshin Dastafshan in Edinburgh, Darius Kadivar in Paris, Milad Molavi in Tehran and Alon Ben-Meir in New York. Without them, we would not have a site.” PersianMirror was recently expanded to enable users to submit articles online and submission is encouraged.


    Dustin and Shabnam, along with their Babak & Friends partners are working hard at raising funding for the next Babak film. Supporters of this venture should go to their website and purchase products in order to help in this effort.




    About Babak and Friends – A First Norooz

    Babak and Friends – A First Norooz is a cartoon about a little boy named Babak who is caught between two cultures and is trying to understand the beauty of Persian culture through celebrating Norooz. Amoo Norooz and Haji Firooz are there to help him through this life-changing process. They take him on an epic stroll through the halls of Persepolis in his dream, and teach him about his great heritage.

    Ms. Ren A. Hakim

    Ren A. Hakin would like to consider herself a modern day Sheherezad. A Broadcast Arts graduate from the United States, she describes her upbringing as, 'Middle East meets Midwest.' While her mother was born and raised in America, her father is from the land once known as Mesopotamia - Iraq. This connection to a region so deeply rooted in the past sparked her fascination with history and instilled an appreciation for the lessons to be learned from it. Growing up in multicultural home is something she counts as a blessing. Some may say she has enjoyed the best of both worlds, but her parents gave her the gift of seeing it is, in truth, ONE.


    This is a central message of Ren's 'novelized' screenplay, Xerxes, which tells the tale of the most feared and revered figure of his time, breathing new life into the emperor - revealing the man. It is a provocative story that illustrates a past shockingly parallel with the present, but inspires hope that the future is not yet lost. It is a saga of love, war and, ultimately, the journey to find one's purpose in life. Ren would like to believe that, through writing, she has found her own.
