On May 14, in Los Angeles, the next award ceremony for the winners of the Faith & Form religious architecture and design contest was to be held, in which the creators of the Church of St. Ignatius of the God-bearer on Vereiskaya street (in the 'Project' nomination) won. The ceremony itself was canceled due to the pandemic, but not its outcome. All winners of the contest are presented below.

The church is designed in a style unusual for Orthodox churches, and some have protested that it is overly 'modern'. The construction of the church is planned to begin this year.
