About the competition

Blackn white art organizes a national contemporary art prize aimed at highlighting and valuing children and young people showing interest in drawing, painting, plastic arts, or even quite simply, having fun drawing, painting, or create.

This prize aims to reveal upcoming artists.

Its vocation is to detect the artistic potential of the candidate, even if, very often, he or his entourage does not know it, and to support in their art promising young talents.

The competition is open to everyone.

No level requirement is required nor any particular course required.

It is open to children and adolescents from 7 to 18 years old.

Three categories: a Jury Prize for each category

The competition is open to schoolchildren, middle school and high school students. Registration will be done by age group categories.

Children category: 7 - 10 years old

Teen category: 11 - 15 years old

High school students category: 15 years old - 18 years old (or more in case of repetition)

The jury will designate a winner in each category.

There will therefore be three 2021 Jury Prizes.
