Closing date is getting near
9. 3. 2010
To this day more than 4,500 entries by children from 33 countries of the world were registered for the 38th edition of ICEFA Lidice 2010, but many packages are still waiting for registration. With the closing date drawing near the daily number of entries delivered to the Lidice Gallery is usually between 80.
The photos show the mail delivered this week and the storeroom slowly filling up with the registered entries.
We like animals
18. 3. 2010
To date, more than 12,000 entries by children from 44 countries of the world were accepted for the 38th edition of ICEFA Lidice. Russian children are the most active ones this year. Three-dimensional entries from the Czech schools registered for the competition were brought in this week. Our storerooms are getting full with collections of flowers, plants, treess and animals.
As a large amount of consignments comes to the Lidice Gallery even after the closing date, a big proportion of entries has not yet been processed and registered in the database. Therefore, we apologise to all questioners from the Czech Republic and abroad for our being unable to confirm the receipt of their entries. The reason can be clearly seen on the photographs.

After the Closing Date and the Sitting of the Panel
12. 4. 2010
The panel of judges of the 38th ICEFA Lidice 2010 met on 6 and 7 April to assess 24,993 entries by children from 60 countries of the world, including CR and SR. Considering the enormous participation, it was no easy job. There have been more than 1.200 winning entries, including the medals awarded to individuals and schools for collections. You can view pictures from the jury at: http://www.mdvv-lidice.cz/en/current/judges/.
Since thorough and exacting check of the information related to the list of the child winners is involved, particularly the names and addresses of participants from abroad, the list of the winners has not yet been completed. However, we work hard to make it available on our website on 10 May.
The ceremonial opening will take place at the Lidice Gallery at Lidice on 26 May, 2010 at 11 a.m. Detailed information will be made available.
Thanks for your understanding.
Ivona Kasalicka, curator

August 2010 - sending awards to children abroad in a shipment MZV CR
26. 10. 2010
The following ICEFA Lidice 2010 awards were sent in August 2010 to children in those countries:
Albania - Tirana (21.8.), Austria - Vienna (19.8.), Bulgaria - Sofia (27.8.), Estonia - Tallin (27.8.), Germany – Berlin (20.8.), Hungary - Budapest (27.8.), Latvia – Riga (27.8.).
Packed with certificates and medals for child winners, catalogues, invitations to participate in the next edition, and other information, including letters to schools that were not awarded a prize, the consignments have been sent directly to the diplomatic mission of the Czech Republic in the capital of the respective country. The way of awarding the prizes depends on accepted practices and possibilities of staffs of the respective embassies – often there is a festive programme at the embassy arranged for the child winners, or, in some other countries, the ambassador, visiting the school, grants prizes directly in the school, or in other countries (India, Kazakhstan), where long distances are involved, the prizes are sent out to children by mail.
Photographs of prize awards can be seen under Prize Awards of the respective edition.
