In anticipation of this winter's grandest event, The 24th International Ice sculpture Festival, the local government institution “Kultūra” announces a collage competition for pupil collectives of  grades 1 to 4 “International Ice sculpture Festival in Jelgava.” This year students have been asked to develop an artwork on the theme “My dream ice sculpture.”


The aim of the competition is to support and promote the creative expressions of children in visual arts by providing an opportunity to strengthen existing and acquire new knowledge about the International Ice Sculpture Festival in Jelgava. Teams, classes or groups of grades 1 to 4 are invited to apply for the competition. One collective may submit one common collage of size A2 for creation of which any materials or visual art techniques may be used.

However, if the class from Jelgava wins the first place, it will get paid bus services of 300 kilometres, as well as invitations to the festival.
