For the 2021 edition of the international art contest Ex Tempore Piran, which will last from the 28th of August until the 4th of September 2021, Piran Coastal Galleries will confer the Children’s Prize, a special prize dedicated to young talented participants. At the end of the contest, there will also be a final exhibition, where the best artworks will be on display.

For many years, the PCG group has shown its support to the valorisation of young talent and has encouraged new generations in developing their creativity. Education in contemporary art is a crucial part of personal growth since childhood: empathy, awareness and freedom of speech are just some of the values a child learns by approaching the art field.

For this reason, in addition to the special prize for young authors, the PCG group offers a rich program of didactic activities and workshops that follows a great number of exhibitions and special events.

The Children’s Prize of Ex Tempore Piran aims at developing and spreading the most vivid and authentic examples of creativity and talent through Slovene Istria, the Littoral, and the surrounding areas.
