Photo contest Art Nouveau Staircases in the framework of the 2019 World Art Nouveau Day - on 10 June 2019 

On June 10th 2019, the Réseau Art Nouveau Network will celebrate the Art Nouveau World Art Day and you are all warmly invited to take part to this international event, open to all!

This seventh time will be dedicated to the theme Art Nouveau Staircases. Absolute backbones of the building, these spaces of circulation, sometimes intended to diffuse natural light in the interiors, did not escape the creative impetus of Art Nouveau. From the start of a staircase to the banister, the Art Nouveau patterns and movements spread out in various forms in order to adapt to its users, owners and housekeepers. The 2019 edition of the World Art Nouveau Day will highlight these spaces, that are sometimes majestic and imposing, sometimes discreet and narrow but always essential.

Introduce us the most outstanding staircases, according to you, of the Art Nouveau movement by participating in our photo contest!

Send us your most beautiful photographs and most beautiful drawing of your kids showing an Art Nouveau staircase before 5 June 2019 at midnight, with your completed entry form enclosed (see below) at, and

All photographs and drawings received matching the theme will be published on 10 June on our Facebook page and submitted to the vote of the Internet community. You will also be invited to guess which Art Nouveau work and which architect the photographs refer to.

Three prizes will be awarded for the photo contest:
- "The Public Prize" for the photograph that will have obtained the largest number of “likes” at 6pm;
- "The Mystery prize" for the person who will guess the origin (piece of work, author) of the largest number of photographs;
- "The Jury’s Prize" awarded by a jury composed of the secretariat and members of the Network.

One prize will be awarded for the drawing contest:
- "The Public Prize" for the drawing that will have obtained the largest number of “likes” at 6pm.

All the photographs and drawings will then be published on the Pinterest page of the Réseau Art Nouveau Network.

Get your cameras and your pencils ready and let’s meet on our Facebook page on the 10th of June to take part to this Day and discover the great winners!
