If you are interested in taking part in this project, enclosed you will find rules document for year 2013.

Freedom” is this year’s subject. The leading question is: what is ‘freedom’ for you? As an individual, group, society, nation, civilization. In what terms this definition currently appears and infiltrates the space of our life?

 The 5th edition of international medal project called “Freedom”  is a continuation of previous international projects titled „Signs of the time” in 2012,“Home” in 2011, “Time” in 2010 and “Dialogue” in 2009. It was addressed to fine arts universities and colleges all over the world, where the contemporary medal art is being taught and who were interested in taking part in the project. The whole project shows the vast diversity in perceiving tendencies and development of contemporary medal art, from formal perspective and widely understood creation in usage of different materials.
