We received almost a thousand drawings for the ’The blue bird of the puszta’ contest,  organised within the framework of the Roller LIFE+ project. The 980 pieces of artwork included drawings, paintings and a handful of pieces by other techniques.

Contestants had almost 2 months to complete their works. We also received entries from across the border: from Serbia, Slovakia and Romania, showing how successful this project was.
