Jury's names and photos

At this 12th edition of the Festas de Lisboa Sardine Contest, Jorge Silva (creative director at Silvadesigners), aka “the Godfather of the Sardine”, will be joined by a top-notch jury to perform the very tricky task of choosing this year’s big winners.

Taking up EGEAC’s invitation to participate in this mission (almost) impossible are: Bela Silva, a versatile artist who works in the areas of sculpture, illustration and public art; the amusing Hugo van der Ding who, in addition to being a comedian, also works as a radio and television presenter, cartoonist, columnist, writer and actor; plastic artist, performer and teacher Susana Mendes Silva and renowned fashion designer Valentim Quaresma.

There will be a total of five winning sardines, each winning a €1500 prize.

The contest will run until 4 April and this year there are two great reasons to create your own stunning sardines: the return of the Festas de Lisboa and the 100th anniversary celebrations of Parque Mayer. We look forward to another contest full of glamour, colour and talent.

Good luck!
