Despite a global pandemic and a devastating war just a few kilometers from two of our project’s partners – Poland and Lithuania – the first edition of MArteLive Europe finally comes to an end with the announcement of the winners in the 16 artistic disciplines in the competition.
The adventure in Europe ended with the final event in Rome, Italy, on October 19th and 20th during BiennaleMArteLive. After two years of scouting we selected 16 artists discovered out of over 1100 entries from 47 countries including 27 members of the European Union and 20 neighboring countries. Our goal was to prove that art has no border and is open to all.
The best artists were selected through 4 stages

In the coming days, the 16 winners of the “twin” contest involving Italian artists will also be announced.
For the first edition of MArteLive Europe, in fact, the two contests remained separate even though later at the final event in Rome a contact was established.
For the 2023-2024 edition the two contests will merge into one big European and international contest for emerging art in all its forms.
