Call for artists “This is your moment”

"This is your moment" is a contest organized by Fidenza Village in collaboration with Parma Capital of Culture and the Antonio Ligabue Foundation. Participation: free, via the Instagram platform Prize: €1,500 to the winner Due to the large number of requests, the deadline for participation in the "This is your moment" contest is extended to October 25. The competition, which features an exceptional jury, was created in conjunction with the exhibition dedicated to Antonio Ligabue and the celebrations of Parma Capital of Culture 2020+2021 with the aim of providing an international stage for new talents in the visual arts. Artists are the first to embrace change, to imagine new worlds, to propose new points of view. Creatives - such as Antonio Ligabue - with their alternative viewpoints and their visionary talents are capable of reinventing the world. This is why Fidenza Village, which has always supported and promoted creativity, is launching a call to artists of all nationalities. The invitation is for artists to imagine a new world and to spread their vision through social media.


The competition is open to creatives from all over the world (visual artists such as: illustrators, motion designers, graphic designers, fashion illustrators), including professionals, non-professionals and students, who are over 18 years of age. Each artist can enter a work of art created with any kind of technique (painting, digital, mixed media, photographic processing, animation or video animation) according to the following methods:

  1. Create a work of art following the instructions provided under the “THE THEME” section.
  2. Publish it on your Instagram profile. The title of the work and the hashtag #FidenzaVillage should appear in the text of your post.
  3. IMPORTANT: in order to participate, you must mention @fidenzavillage in your post. As an additional option, you can also mention @parma2020official and, which will also share the most interesting images. This will allow the images to be seen by even more people. You can also share your post in Instagram Stories to allow the promoters to share it and to give maximum visibility to the most original works of art.
  4. The most interesting contributions will be displayed immediately in the Fidenza Village space, which will host an original work by Antonio Ligabue (so, the sooner you participate, the more chances you have that your image will be exhibited together with Ligabue's masterpiece).
