Zima International Kids Music Festival is not a competition, but only a song festival - prizes are not awarded to the participants of this musical project, each young performer is awarded a diploma.
The festival participants have already successfully performed at various prestigious international competitions.
For example, Zima-2017 participants became winners of the international music television contest "Vo Ves Golos". Rustam Karimov also excelled - he won a special prize at the San-Remo Junior 2017, while Alexander Zazarashvili, a participant of Zima-2018, became the winner of "The Voice Kids" in Ukraine.
