Announcing the Winners of the 2017 Antwerp University & Panathlon Drawing Contest

Today, the Contest Selection Commission has announced the winners of the 2017 Antwerp University & Panathlon Drawing Contest. The 15 best drawings selected from 112 entries were presented to the Commission for the appointment of the three winners.


The Chairman of the Selection Commission, Prof. Dr. Alain Verschoren, Prorector of the University of Antwerp, expressed his admiration for the increased artistic level and the variety of drawing methods and techniques presented.

Therefore the Commission found it difficult to select a final winner of the first prize, and consequently, it was decided that two first prizes would be awarded, and also a third prize.

The first prize is shared between Ernest Seah from Singapore with «Fair Play» and Artem Tereschenko from Belarus with «Ludis Iungit». The third prize was awarded to Marcos Santos Magnani da Silva from Brazil with «Fair Play Volley». The Commission also decided to extend an honorable commendation to Aigul Kuldibaeva from Kazakhstan with «Creation of a Panathlete».


On behalf of the PCU Committee and the University of Antwerp, our thanks to everyone who entered the 2017 Drawing Contest.


Soon the invitation campaign for the 2018 Drawing Contest will begin. Take a chance to win next year!
