Jury Session of the 49th ICEFA Lidice 2021

10. 5. 2021

The jury session of ICEFA Lidice took place at the Lidice Gallery from May 6 to May 8, 2021. In two rounds, the jury carefully chose artworks to be awarded from over 11,200 works of art by children from 72 countries on the theme of "Robot and artificial intelligence".

Due to the ongoing pandemic, only members of the jury from the Czech Republic took part in the meeting, similarly to the last year. We sincerely hope that next year it will be possible to invite colleagues from abroad to Lidice again.

With the necessary postponement of the jury from the original date in March, the schedule of the exhibition has changed.

The results of the competition will be published on the exhibition website on June 21. You can visit the exhibition of almost a thousand awarded works at the Lidice Gallery from the beginning of July. The traditional award ceremony for medallists from the Czech Republic and the two schools awarded with the Jury Prize will take place on September 9 in the garden of the Lidice Gallery.

We will inform you in case of any further changes due to the current epidemic situation.

Once more, we would like to thank all the children who took part in the competition this year, as well as their teachers and relatives who support them in creative efforts!

The exhibition jury will take place in May

1. 5. 2021

The exhibition jury will soon select the winning artworks of the 49th International Children's Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice 2021.

Despite the fact that schools, art schools and art clubs in the Czech Republic and in other countries have been closed for a large part of the year, more than 11 000 works on the topic of "Robot and artificial intelligence" from 72 countries were delivered to the Lidice Gallery, among them over seven hundred 3D artworks. All participants showed incredible commitment and creativity in the current situation. Thank you very much!

Due to the postponement of the jury meeting, the whole schedule of the exhibition will change. The results of the competition are expected to be published on the website in mid-June and the exhibition of the winning artworks in the Lidice Gallery will open in mid-July. The exhibition at the Lidice Gallery will be extended until January.

The updated schedule of the exhibition will be published after the jury meeting. We are sorry that you have to wait a little longer for the results of the competition and for the exhibition this year. The postponement has been caused by adverse epidemiological situation in the Czech Republic. Thank you very much for your understanding.

The jury session is postponed, new artworks arrive every day

5. 3. 2021

Dear participants, thank you very much for this year's great interest in the exhibition! Packages with artworks from all over the world continue to arrive at the Lidice Gallery.

We carefully store all delivered packages and we will register all entries in time for the exhibition jury. Please, do not worry if you currently do not see your artworks on our website as registered for the competition. Due to the worsening of the epidemic situation in the Czech Republic and the tightening of anti-COVID-19 measures, we have postponed the jury session, thus extending the registration of artworks, which will continue into April.

We will inform you about the new date of the jury session. 

With best wishes
