32nd ANNUAL PAINTING/DRAWING COMPETITION
The Gibraltar Heritage Trust will be holding its annual open-air painting/sketching competition on Saturday 8th May. The theme this year is “Europa Flats” in the area of Europa Point. This year’s competition will be the 32nd anniversary of the event which has seen participation over the years from a wide range of Gibraltar’s artists – amateurs to professional. Despite the ongoing pandemic of 2020, we have continued this event and are delighted to be restoring and hosting an in-person competition this year where we hope to see as high a turnout of participants as we saw last year.
Registration of participants will take place on site, on the day as from 9.00am until 12:30pm. Pre-registration and Rules of the competition will also be made available on our website or on this link.
