Winner of each category will receive a signed graphic work by Erró, personally donated by the artist.

The purpose of the collage competition is to increase understanding and knowledge of collages, as well as interest in collages as an art form, among the general public and students alike. The competition revolves around making collages from found materials, i.e. newspapers, magazines, books and other published and two-dimensional material.
