THE Committee of Cyprus Occupied Municipalities has launched two islandwide competitions, one for art and another for photography, entitled “Places, faces, memories from Occupied Cyprus”.
The competition aims to offer people born after 1974 the opportunity to creatively project their impressions and feelings about it.
The 20 best works from each competition will be presented during an event to condemn the establishment of the ‘TRNC’, on 15 November, at Famagusta Gate.
People aged 15 to 35 years old living in Cyprus or abroad can take part in the two competitions.
Each work (painting or photograph) must be accompanied by a short story, narration, description, maxim or poem, of no more than 150 words. First, second and third prizes will be awarded, as well as three commendations for the runners up in each competition (commemorative plaques and certificates).
First prize will be €200, second €150 and third €100.
The winners will be chosen by a panel comprising professionals and personalities well respected within their fields.
All works with their accompanying text and entry form can be submitted to the offices of the Union of Cyprus Municipalities, 78 Rigainis Street, 1010 Nicosia between 8.30 am and 3 pm, or sent by post to P.O. Box 22033, 1516, Nicosia. The final day of submissions is Monday, September 30 at 3pm.
