Co-organized by the University of Cyprus and the Telemachus Kanthos Foundation
The University of Cyprus and the Telemachus Kanthos Foundation have undertaken the joint organization of the 7th “Telemachus Kanthos Visual Arts Competition”.

The competition is organised every two years and includes different aspects of the visual arts, such as painting, engraving, drawing and illustration.
The 7th ‘Telemachus Kanthos Visual Arts Competition’ will be launched in 2022 and will include the themes of painting and printmaking.
The competition is open to artists over 16 years of age, citizens of the Republic of Cyprus or permanent residents of Cyprus of another nationality.
Two painting prizes will be awarded, one prize of 800 Euro for self-taught painters and one prize of 1,600 Euro for painters who are following, or have completed, higher studies in painting. Each applicant must declare in which of the two categories they will compete. There will also be a 1,600 Euro printmaking prize and a 500 Euro prize for young artists aged 16-21.
