Art Competition 2019

Now open for its 2019 edition, the main idea behind the festival and the Art competition is to promote modern art as the form of dialogue with the public and to encourage young artists to create art engaged in the reality.
Billboards – the symbol of the modern age consumption – are transformed into an object of consideration, reflection and a deep insight into ourselves and the surrounding.


The purpose of the Competition is to propagate and popularize billboard art and to encourage artists to create art engaged in the reality.

Artists are invited to prepare an artwork in response to this year’s competition theme: An impending disaster or a chance to save yourself and the world?

This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor of all the processes taking place in the world today. Will the world end soon? Will most species of plants and animals on our planet become extinct soon? Will there be an ecological disaster?

Will most people live in extreme poverty, and will the world be constantly at wars? We are drowning in this kind of information that causes fear and paralyses. How to not slip into a depression and defeatism, how to treat the alarming data as a challenge and seek creative solutions? How to hear a wake-up call?


The format of the competition work should be 498 cm x 238 cm (196 inches x 95.7 inches) in a horizontal layout, 100 dpi, CMYK, tiff.
