The National Exhibition for Contemporary Painting, Graphics and Sculpture is the oldest alien national event – since 1968 and we organize every two years in Burgas. The exhibition was suspended in 1984 and resumed in 2004. In September 2020, the eighth renewed edition will take place. Then we can take part of all artists from Bulgaria with paintings, graphics and sculptures dedicated to the sea, who have accepted the terms of this status.

The judging of the works for participation in the National Exhibition – Biennial “Friends of the Sea” and the awards are determined by a seven-member jury composed of authoritative Bulgarian artists and art critics and a representative of the Municipality of Burgas. The exposition of the National Exhibition – Biennial “Friends of the Sea” is arranged in the halls of BHG “Petko Zadgorski” and the Society of Artists – Burgas. Paintings, graphics and sculptures are accepted. The technique and the material are free. Each author can participate in all three categories – painting, graphics, sculpture, and each is paid separately. The author can participate with no more than 2 works in a category.
