Earlier this month Nerja council announced that they were to hold a poster competition for this years Noche en Blanco (White Night), with the winning entry receiving €150 in return for the use of the poster. The winner has now been announced and it is called “Mar de culturas” by Rafael Baeza Moreno (pictured). The winning poster along with the other entries will be on display in the Sala Mercado on Noche en Blanco on the 18th of May.

The winning entry was created using Photoshop and depicts a wave with the foam from the crest showing different arts, such as dance, cinema and writing.

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. Nerja’s first “Noche en Blanco” took place last year 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.
