Terms and conditions


The Contest is open to all children and youth aged 5–17, living in the cities where the project concerts will take place: Vilnius, Kaunas, Rostock, Tartu, Brighton, Vienna, Riga and Duivendrecht.


The artworks entered in the Contest should be related to the Hanseatic League theme.


Participants are invited to draw or paint images, landscapes, life scenes, maps, etc. of Hanseatic cities of their own country in medieval, renaissance and early baroque styles or using the elements of these styles (the list of cities of the Hanseatic League can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanseatic_League)


Participants can use and revise the existing historical images of Hanseatic cities, created between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries, or their fragments by colouring them or otherwise transforming them by adding characters and stories, using collage, animation or other techniques.


Participants are invited to use their creativity and imagination with respect to the historical material and historical styles, as the means to connect the past and the present.


Participants can use the historical images of Hanseatic cities downloaded from this website: Historical images or use other historical images created between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries. In the case where artworks are created that do not refer to the historical images of the Canto Fiorito website, participants will be asked to send these images to the Contest organisers.


Participants are asked to scan their completed artwork in high resolution and send it by email to: administration@cantofiorito.lt by 28 February, 2019, indicating the name and family name, age, country and city of residence and email address of the author. If the digital data exceeds 10 MB, please use www.wetransfer.com to send the image.


Each participant may submit only one piece of artwork.


Each participant agrees to transfer, at no additional cost, to the Contest organisers his/her rights to the artwork submitted for the Contest, without any territorial or time limitations, for all forms of exploitation within the context of The Hanseatic Way project, such as: copying; printing; distributing; publishing; modifying; altering; transferring; storing in any form of storage; using in public presentations and/or exhibitions; displaying – all of the above by whatever means and in any form and format.


The selected artworks and the names of their authors will be used in a video film screened during the concerts of the concert tour The Hanseatic Way: a Musical Journey Through a Shared Past in Vilnius, Kaunas, Rostock, Tartu, Brighton, Vienna, Riga and Duivendrecht.


The selected artworks will be published in the website of the project The Hanseatic Way: a Musical Journey Through a Shared Past.


When possible, participants of the Contest will be invited to the concerts and introduced on stage at the end of the concert.


The authors of the best artworks will receive special prizes: one Kindle reader, two books on art and souvenirs in every city, where the Contest and concerts take place.
