    Prize


    The winners will have the privilege to design one of the teams of the 2018 World Cup for the tschutti heftli legendary collector's album. The distribution of the album in Switzerland, Germany, and further European countries will offer you a great platform to present your work to a large audience. All artists represented in our album will receive a lump sum for their expenses, the amount of which will be determined by the sales figures of our album.

    Moreover, the best works will receive cash prizes totalling 5,000 Swiss Francs (approx. 5,140 USD).

    For the Under-13 Category, the best 11 portraits (selected by a jury under the guidance of the tschutti heftli team) will be part of our collector's album. They will be made into a sticker for a special page in the album called "Under-13 All Stars". In addition, you will get an album complete with all stickers, plus a tschutti heftli surprise package full of great presents.
