"Crama Oprișor Awards for Contemporary Drawing" is a private initiative, which has been designed, from the beginning, as a contribution to the development of the social-artistic involvement and support for young students and graduates of higher artistic education institutions in Romania. If the first edition of the competition (2017) was held in collaboration with the National University of Arts in Bucharest, this year's edition benefits from the partnership with the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca.
