The competition has been writing its history since 2006 and has gradually built up the status as one of the most stable platforms for the appreciation and visibility of professional painters in Slovakia. During this year, 109 painters and painters under 35 have submitted their art, showing their trust in the competition. 55 of the young painters applied for the very first time.
