    Now open for its 2020 edition, the main idea behind the festival and the 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.

    Artists are invited to prepare an artwork in response to this year’s competition theme: Epidemics – a global catastrophe, a punishment, or a chance to reinvent yourself and the world?

    This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor of all the processes taking place in the world today. The past few months have changed the entire world – societies and countries, families and individual people. The standard rules of reality have been suspended, and we have been hiding in our homes, isolated from others and transfixed with horror. Individuals and whole societies have been overwhelmed by fear, anxiety and trauma. These tough moments and experiences have left an imprint on us, but have they changed us for the better?

    Both individual artists and groups of artists can participate in the competition. If some other slogan or phrase is used in the work, it should be expressed in either Polish or English language.

    There is no entry fee.
