He was a laureate of the award in 2004 and 2018. Also, he was among the initiators to name the street where O.O.Osmerkin Art-Memorial Museum - Historical, town planning, and architectural monument of 1899 “Residence building of Pauchenko” is situated, after a talented architect Yakiv Vasyliovych Pauchenko, who created the architecture of the historical center of Elisavethrad (now Kropyvnytskyi).
