Contributed - 5th ALFA Contest


is the theme of the 5th ALFA contest:

ALFA, the association of literature and film friends in the Algarve, is running its fifth multimedia Competition.


It can be a painting, photo, sculpture, song, or any other medium. Traces is everything: evidence in criminal cases, foot prints, finger prints, prints in the sand, in the snow, prints that animals leave, historical residue, wrinkles, anything that leaves a mark.....

The entry must be your own work.

The entries will be exhibited in an interactive exhibition in the Convento S. José thus every visitor votes for his/her favourite item. The entry with most votes wins: The ALFI*

*ALFI is ALFA’s mascot, a reading rat, designed in Raku ceramic technique by German artist Christa Widmann. In other competitions you can win an Oscar or a globe – here you can win an Alfi.
