The initiative “Lagos em casa com… Humor” arises from the encouragement of creativity and originality of artists in the period of confinement required by the State of Emergency due to COVID-19. As a way of subverting the negativity inherent in the situation, the Lacobrigense autarchy joined the Cultural Association LAC - Laboratory of Creative Activities to highlight the artists who present the best and the most humorous cartoons about the pandemic, rewarding the first three classified in the contest.
Taking the COVID-19 pandemic situation as a required theme, as well as the resilience and courage of the Lacobrigense community, this national contest allows the submission, in digital format, of up to three works per artist. The first three classifieds will receive a monetary prize (1st Prize: 300 €; 2nd Prize: 200 €; 3rd Prize: 100 €), but all works will be entitled to be published on the website and social networks of the municipality and, in the future, in an exhibition in physical space. The Jury will consist of 1 member from the Municipality of Lagos, 1 member from LAC and 1 guest artist. Until May 5th, these creatives will have the opportunity to make them laugh and smile by sending their cartoons.
In a continuous effort to support and keep the population occupied, encouraging their creativity and positive spirit during the State of Emergency, the municipality of Lagos has launched several artistic and cultural challenges. Lagos at home with… has been promoting, weekly, music videos, made at the home of each of its local artists. On the other hand, the municipality's invites aims to encourage residents, especially children, to show their perspectives for the future and their daily lives in confinement through photographs, illustrations or original poetry to be posted on the autarchy's Facebook page.
We count on your creativity, originality and technique. Check the contest rules, send your art and make us smile. We are together!
