open-airPalais-Royal OpenAir is a competition which offers the winner the opportunity of a residency as well as a personal exhibition at the Peter’s Friends gallery in Paris. 

We are now accepting applications form from Romanian artists. A five weeks residency starting from May 3, 2010 through to June 4, 2010 will be awarded to the Romanian winner. The application deadline is March 6, 2010. Application form can be downloaded from the Palais-Royal website.  

Both emerging and confirmed professional Romanian artists are invited to propose their projects. Candidates must be under 40 years of age and must work in the field of the plastic arts. Students may apply on condition that they are in their final year of arts school. The participants are requested to prepare a complete application package. 

You can find more detailed information about the project at: 

I would be very grateful if you could disseminate the information about the competition among Romanian artists. 
I was also wondering if you had a mailing list ? This is probably the best way to communicate on the project and to reach the great majority of Romanian artists. 

I also wish to inform you that Palais-Royal OpenAir is organized in partnership with foreign cultural institutions also with the Romanian Cultural Institute in Paris represented by its director, Mrs Magda Carneci.

The information about the residency is also available on the Romanian Cultural Institute website:
