On February 26, 2004 Market Wire reported, "The Interfaith Sacred Space International Design Competition today announced four winning entries in the first competition in the history of religion designed specifically to identify concepts for truly interfaith sacred space. The competition's goal is to encourage creation of spaces designed for use by peoples of all faiths, as a means of promoting peace and understanding among the world's religions and, ultimately, peace among nations... Winning entries were determined to be acceptable to each of the world's major religions and faith groups by advisors to the judges. The advisors included religious scholars representing the world's major religions, including Western and Eastern Christianity; Islam; African, Asian, and American indigenous traditions; Judaism; Buddhism; Hinduism; Chinese religions; Shinto; Neopaganism; Sikhism; the Baha'i faith, Zoroastrianism, and other faith groups."
