Participants will reside in the luxurious interiors of the Leonardo Royal Warsaw and NYX Hotel Warsaw, creating works inspired by the life of the capital.

Warsaw – City of contrasts

Warsaw is a city full of contrasts, where historic landmarks sit side by side with modern business centers. Bustling streets, socialist memories and modern architecture create a unique cityscape. It is these contrasts that are expected to inspire participants in the Art Lives Here competition.

Works inspired by the city

The three winners of the competition will have the unique opportunity to reside for nearly three weeks in the picturesque interiors of Leonardo hotels. Their task will be to capture the life and contrasts of Warsaw in their photographic works. The jury, consisting of renowned representatives of the art world, will select the winning work, which will permanently enrich the collection of NYX Hotel Warsaw and Leonardo Royal Warsaw.
