The XXI International Drawing and Painting Competition Joy of Europe

 

 

This year marks exactly half a century since the foundation of the unique children’s manifestation “Joy of Europe”, and this year’s international art competition for the twenty first time invites children and young artistic creators from all over the world to use their rich palette and show that the true creative value of the children’s art creation has been recognized and confirmed from the perspective of deep psychology and modern view of art.

Propositions:

The competition is open to individuals, preschools, schools, children’s art studios, children’s cultural centres and similar children’s institutions and associations.

 

  • Competition is open to all children from 4 to 18 years of age.
  • The topic is free.
  • We accept works on paper in various techniques (pencil, watercolour, tempera, gouache, aquarelle, pastel, Indian ink, collage, combined techniques on paper)
  • Works should not be fitted or framed, and, because of the possibility of damage, sculptures, ceramics, mosaics and works done in similar techniques will not be accepted.
  • Maximum size of the works of art should be 500 x 700 mm.
  • Individual participants can send up to three works in different techniques, and institutions and associations up to 20 works by different authors.
  • The back of each work MUST CONTAIN the table/form we attach to this document, with all the data filled in.
  • The participants must fill in on the computer all the fields of the form (in most cases hand-filled forms are illegible and they make communication more difficult)
