The contest

The EPM International Contest is an exceptional showcase for quilters from all over the world.

The European Patchwork Meeting organizers come up with a theme every autumn. The result is a new edition of the contest, open to all quilt enthusiasts. Several months of imagination and creation are required for each participant to create his or her work before registering in the spring.

Three judges then analyze all the works based on photos and make a selection of the 30 quilts that best represent the year’s theme. This selection then premieres in September at EPM. The awards ceremony is then held officially with numerous prizes revealed: grand prize, public prizewinner, organization prize and various sponsor prizes.

After this launch, an exciting 10-month journey awaits the 30 works in the world’s finest art galleries, museums and quilting events: a wonderful opportunity for the artists to showcase their work internationally!
