The jury of the 45th edition of the Satyrykon competition deliberated on March 5, 2022, consisting of: Szymon Szymankiewicz – chairman, Vasco Gargalo (Portugal), Janusz Kapusta (Poland), Ali Miraee (Iran), Peter Nieuwendijk (Belgium), Kaja Renkas (Poland) and Anita Wincencjusz-Patyna (Poland).
The Satyrykon competition is an open competition, where authors can submit drawings, graphics, photographs, sculptures and other artistic works. The works were judged in two categories: SCHOOL (this year’s theme) and traditionally JOKE and SATIRYRA.
The jury, after viewing 2,500 works by 764 authors from 65 countries around the world, qualified 188 works for the post-competition exhibition. The most important trophy – the Grand Prix of Satyricon 2022 went for the first time to an artist from Cuba, namely Carlos David Fuentes Hierrezuelo.
The winning work addresses the problem of women’s lack of equality across cultures. Admittedly, here we have the burqa, but this problem can also be transferred to Europe and Poland. This year’s works, moreover, touch on a great many other important problems, such as education, school and religion. They were very diverse in their form, which I am very happy about, but the most important thing remains the content and message of the author,” assesses chairman Szymon Szymankiewicz.
The International Exhibition Satyrykon – Legnica 2022 will feature works by artists recognized in Poland and around the world.
