A PLACE WHERE THE PAST CAN INSPIRE THE PRESENT
LOOK, SEARCH, DISCOVER, CREATE
ART COMPETITION - ICONS TRANSFORMED
Can you imagine this icon in different colors? Can you see it in black and white? Can you make it look more abstract - or perhaps more realistic?
Explore our image gallery to find works that inspire you to create something new.
Or look further, at any other images painted by Dicho Zograf or his students.
Once you have created your original work, send us a high resolution photograph. Selected images will be displayed as a virtual exhibition on this site - and possibly in a physical space as well.
The competition is open to high school students from North Macedonia.
Each person can submit up to three images.
Deadline for submission of the photographs: December 31, 2023
Please send your photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org
Prizes for the first, second and third place.
