Participate at the 51st International Children's Art Competition Lidice 2023

We invite children and youth from the age of 4-16 to participate in the 51st International Children's Art Exhibition Lidice 2023. An exhibition that unites young artists from all over the world with a united determination: through sincerity, creativity and enthusiasm to commemorate the tragic event of 1942 nazi destruction of the Lidice village and thus spread hope and a positive vision for the future. Join a project that is unique on a global scale and was received the Gratias agit award by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic in 2018.

This originally national exhibition became an international exhibition in 1973 and during its history became well known not only among children and teachers in Czechoslovakia, but literally throughout the world. In recent years, more than 25,000 very high-quality works of art from children not only from the Czech and Slovak Republics, but also from other 70-80 countries of the world, have regularly entered the exhibition. In 2022, one 14-year-old Canadian participant, Wang Brenton from Oakville, also won, congratulations.
