Contest for young artists

Fantasy among the stars

This year at Arcana, a competition is organized to allow 3 artists to exhibit their works during the 4 days of the festival. 
Practical information

The first phase of the competition takes place from March 20th to April 30th. During this period, all artists are encouraged to send us an artwork using the Registration Form at the bottom of the page. The terms  and the theme must be respected.


We have decided to create three age categories: 13 to 15 years old, 16 to 19 years old and 20 to 25 years old. Five winners will be chosen in each of these groups.  


Once the registration phase is over, a pre-selection will be made by the Arcana committee and the artworks will be made available to the public in  a digital gallery on this very website.

During the second phase of the competition, which will run from May 15th to 31st, everyone will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite artist. This will be the time to share the contest to  your friends, loved ones and on your socials to get as many votes as possible!

The winners will be personally contacted by email on June 5th and we will announce it publicly in the evening on our social networks and on this website.
