Noche En Blanco 2013 Poster Competition

Latest News Sunday 7th of April 2013

For Noche En Blanco Nerja 2013 Programme Of Events please see this page:-
Nerja Noche En Blanco 2013 Programme Of Events.

Nerja Council have organised a poster competition for this year’s “Noche En Blanco” which takes place on the 18th of May 2013. Entrants have until the 19th of April to submit their posters. The winning entry will receive €150 from the council in exchange for the rights to the picture (more details below).

In 2002 the first ‘Nuit Blanche’ took place in Paris, the brainchild of Jean Blaise who wanted towns and cities, for one night a year, to open their galleries and museums and other cultural venues for the whole night, and for the public spaces to be turned into giant performance areas where artists and musicians could perform in a wonderful carnival atmosphere. The first “Noche en Blanco” took place last year in Nerja in May, to coincide with International Museum Day. The programme has not yet been announced for this years event, but last year included free entrance to the museum, music and dancing on the Balcon de Europa and a party in Plaza Espana.
