Quick painting contest in Denia


CALLE MARQUES de Campo will play host to the Concurso de Pintura Rapida Ciudad de Denia (translated to – ‘quick painting contest’) on Sunday June 11.

In its fourth year, organised by the Department of Culture of the City Council of Denia and the Association of Artists of the High Navy ADAMA, the contest encourages anyone over 16-years-old to participate – setting up along the Marques de Campo between 11.00am and 6.30pm to create their masterpieces.

The works will be judged in the Tourist Office of Plaza del Consell and prizes will be awarded as follows:

1st prize – €700
2nd prize – €400
3rd prize – €200

The ‘best local artist’ will receive a prize trip to Formentera for two people and the ‘best artist of the region’ will be awarded a batch of painting valued at €100.

Until June 2, registration will be free. For participants registering on on the same day of the competition, the cost will be €5.

The five awarded works will be exhibited in the House of Culture of Denia from June 15 to 30, 2017.
