The purpose of the contest is to highlight the concept of the "Wisdom of God" in the modern world and to promote the churches that have been built in its honor for centuries.

The Church of the Holy Wisdom of God in the City of cities, Istanbul, the “Great Church,” the “Great Monastery,” is a unique monument with a universal character that "belongs to humanity and the world cultural heritage.” Hagia Sophia of Istanbul was the model, which was followed by the building of hundreds of churches until today, all over the Orthodox world dedicated to the Wisdom of God.
