We will ask the participants of this competition to show the laconicism of the New Year mood in a minimalistic manner. The fewer strokes you need to display an idea, the better. At the same time, a drawing that conveys more meaning or evokes more emotions will be rated higher. In the nomination “Painting” the composition may be a little more complicated and rich, while in the “Graphics” several beautiful smooth lines may be enough.
