Event History

Founded in 2004, LUBICA made a pledge to promote tradition, culture, sustainability, and innovation. Its 12th edition will take place in 2024, marking 20 years of activity. LUBICA aims at bringing together and offering inspiring new opportunities to artists who are looking for a challenge, want to “educate about beauty”, take care of the Other, and are willing to think outside the box to come up with new points of view.

Copyright Policy

Without prejudice to intellectual property rights, by sending their project proposals artists authorize LUBICA to exhibit, photograph, and film their artworks during the exhibition, and to display them on its preferred channels as part of the communication campaign. Participants guarantee that neither their proposal nor their work violate patents or intellectual property rights belonging to third parties. In case of a legal dispute in which it is stated that the project partially or fully violates patents or other intellectual property rights, the Organiser reserves the right to hold the participant liable for compensation of the damage suffered. The Organiser may use the submitted projects to promote the competition or any other related promotional event, such as exhibitions, websites, fairs, etc. The finalists’ artworks will be the focus of a communication programme. The realized artworks are property of LUBICA.


The competition is open to professional and emerging artists and fashion designers interested in creating works of art, clothing, accessories, and jewelry that involve the use of paper in bold and innovative ways in order to enhance the original features of this material. The selected artworks will be exhibited in LUBICA’s indoor venues. 

The theme of LUBICA’s 12th edition is “Here and Now: Tomorrow”

Nowadays, nothing seems to last and people often seem to act only in the here and now, without considering the consequences of their actions, as if they faced no tomorrow. Art, on the other hand, has always had its eyes set on the future, and on the human mind’s countless opportunities to travel beyond itself, in search of new worlds to build, imagine and discover. At the same time, knowing how to live in the present – the here and now – is crucial to our existence. The present is the only time in which we can truly exist, grow, feel, love, and rejoice. Too often, we forget about this simple fact and end up repeating the same actions over and over as if in a trance, that of linear time, the time of our ego, of material living. The outside world, society, our obligations, as well as social media are constantly calling our attention away from the here and now, distracting us from the present moment, postponing it to a later time, tomorrow, maybe.
