Dino Parque Lourinhã and the Museu da Lourinhã organize the X CIID 2022, International Dinosaur Illustration Contest. This tenth edition intends to reward the best illustrations of prehistoric organisms made in Portugal and in the rest of the world.
Paleoart is a specific discipline of the paleontological dissemination work. As it is not possible to take photographs of extinct organisms, the only way to "see again" animals as fantastic as dinosaurs as if they were alive is through artistic recreation.
This edition, which for the first time has the co-organization of Dino Parque, has the Cenozoic fauna as its theme, such as mammoths and saber-toothed tigers which, although they are not dinosaurs, are also representative of the pre-historic animals of Portugal. Illustrations with dinosaurs are also valid.
Submissions can be made until the end of May 2022, to the addresses listed in the regulations, and is open to all paleoartists over the age of 14.
The results will be announced in August 2022, the first prize is €1,000.00, and there is a special prize for 3D modelling.
