International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice

The International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice (ICEFA Lidice) was established in 1967 to commemorate the child victims from the Czech village of Lidice murdered by German Nazis, as well as all other children who have died in wars.

Although national initially, this exhibition became an international one in 1973 and since then it has become well known among children and teachers not only in our country but literally all over the world. In recent years, more than 25,000 very good works of art have come regularly by children not only from the Czech and Slovak republics but also from other 60-70 countries, including such distant ones as China, India, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Philippines, Sri Lanka or Zimbabwe.

In 2018 the exhibition received the Gratias Agit award (formerly Jan Masaryk Gratias Agit) from the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic for spreading the good name of the Czech Republic abroad.

You can visit the main exhibition at the Lidice Gallery every year.

Shipment to the 51st edition of ICEFA Lidice 2023

Shipment to the 51st edition of ICEFA Lidice 2023

15. 2. 2023

Dear young artists, dear parents and teachers,

We are very pleased that the theme of DANCE appealed to so many children.

Please do not send us questions about the delivery of a specific shipment. We are literally inundated with packages and are working diligently to register them. Registration will take place throughout February until the first round of the expert jury, which will take place in mid-March.

Please bear with us. For now, you can guess whether we will surpass last year's number of delivered works - there were 14,527. Maybe this year there will be around 20,000 - what do you think?

Thank you for your understanding,

ICEFA Lidice team
