    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: Involvement and responsibility. Can each of us co-create a better world?

    This competition slogan can be treated as a metaphor of all the processes taking place in the world today. Is each of us responsible for the world we live in? Are we ready to get involved and take responsibility for our lives and the life of the communities we live in? Or maybe we prefer to put this responsibility into the hands of other people – politicians, governments, the media, corporations? Will they take up this challenge?

    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. In order to take part in the Competition, the artist has to send a completed entry form and attach a preview of the submitted work in the following format: 30 cm x 14,3 cm (11,8 inches x 5,6 inches) in a horizontal layout, 72 dpi, jpg.

    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.
