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.

In the Lidice Gallery, preparations for this year's 49th ICEFA Lidice are in full swing. In recent weeks, art photographer Martin Homola has been working in the gallery, carefully documenting all the awarded works. Soon, you will be able to view the photos on our website together with the results of this year's competition. The exhibition spaces are gradually filled with robots of all shapes and sizes, various colors and materials. Like us, they are certainly looking forward to meeting you, our dear visitors.

The exhibition will be open to the public from July 1, 2021 until January 31, 2022. The traditional award ceremony in the garden of the Lidice gallery will take place on Thursday, September 9, 2021.
