Congratulations to the winners and honourable mentions and thanks to all the participants in the contest 'Castles'.



'Melancholy' is the currently running theme.
Melancholy often plays a role in our encounters with art works and it is also present in some of our aesthetic responses to the natural environment but also in everyday situations that give reason for melancholy to arise. Try to express melancholy as an aesthetic emoition and read the article about melancholy written by Editor Lourens Durand who will be published this Friday.


This contest will end at midnight on Sunday the 24th of April 2022.
