Dear friends, thank you very much for your participation in the 40th International Children’s Exhibition of Fine Arts Lidice 2012 (or in previous editions). Prizes for winners and letters of thanks for non-winners of 2012 were dispatched through the Ministry of Culture of the CR to the embassies of the CR, which distribute them further or organize ceremonial awards directly at the embassies. If the prize award is going to be held in your school we would be grateful for you to e-mail us some photos of this occasion as well as the child winners and their certificates.
This is an invitation for you to participate in the next, 41st edition of this major exhibition LIDICE 2013, which is determined for children from 4 to 16.
The year 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of a global convention protecting folk art, crafts, ceremonies and traditional knowledge – the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage. At the occasion of the anniversary of this extraordinary and popular convention, UNESCO suggested dedicating the 41st edition of the exhibition to the theme:
TRADITIONS AND HERITAGE OF MY COUNTRY’S PEOPLE
Traditional clothing in my country
Beautiful things made by craftsmen in my country
Folk legends of my country - What are they about?
Folk customs, ceremonies and traditions in the course of the year
The closing date is 15 March 2013. The best entries selected by the expert panel of judges and awarded with medals and honourable mentions will be displayed at the Lidice Gallery at Lidice from 29 May to 31 October 2013. Some entries will be selected for touring exhibitions in the Czech Republic and abroad.
