The International Pastel Biennial is a contest organised for professional artists from Poland and abroad. The goal of the contest is to showcase contemporary variety of artistic creation using the pastel technique and to compare artistic output of painters representing a variety of countries and cultures.
The contest is open to professional artists from Poland and abroad as well as to students in the final year at Art Academies. Participation in the contest is free of charge. Each artist may submit three of his/her own works, created between 2014–2018 and not displayed or awarded to date, to the contest.
Eligible entries will be executed in the oil pastel or dry pastel techniques on one plane (diptychs, triptychs, etc., as well as collages and other mixed media are excluded).
