Street Art Show welcomes contestants countrywide
Street Art Show Hungary
A nationwide competition for street artists will be organized in ten major Hungarian cities from this spring, with the series set to kick off in Eger (NE Hungary) on April 28-29. The Street Art Show is open to anyone who fancies convincing the public of their talents, with winners selected based on votes of street audiences at each venue.

After local heats in the participating cities, the best street artists will get the chance to show off their talents again in the capital next May, where it will be decided who are the best street artists in Hungary, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The competition is the first of its kind in the country. There are no set categories in the Street Art Show, which expects to welcome dancers, "living sculptures," painters and street musicians alike - or anyone that has a creative talent they wish to show on the street.
The participating cities are Szekszárd, Eger, Nyíregyháza, Győr, Sopron, Szombathely, Tatabánya, Miskolc, Debrecen, and Budapest.
Competitors will also be assessed by a professional jury, who will hand out three special prizes, for the most tenacious, most spectacular, and best under-14 shows.
Most stops on the tour will also be accompanied by food trucks, offering bystanders street food to go with their street art experience.
Street artists take to Dobó tér, the main square of Eger, for the first stop of the tour on April 28-29.
