UPAW, a Street Art contest for college students

Created by students from Charles III College, the first edition of the Street Art Challenge Junior contest will take place from 25th June at the UPAW event at Stars’N’Bars, with an awards ceremony on 27th June at 5pm, just ahead of an auction of the exhibition at 5.30pm.

The challenge is being implemented thanks to the participation of Alberto Colman, director of WSM Events.

Considering art is also about procuring and producing emotions, students will have the opportunity to show their talent and use the same type of canvas as the international artists who will also be present.

The jury, which is composed of UPAW street artists, elected municipal officials, Willem Speerstra, artistic director, José Giannotti and Paolo di Nola will award a prize to the winning student group.

The aim of the event is for young people to present their work and to meet artists, perhaps even unveil future talents.
