Postcard from the future – Drawing contest for everybody


It is May 25, 2042. It is the day when you visit Bánffy castle, Bonțida. During the visit, your phone rings: it’s Grandma, and she is curious to find out where you are. You cannot send her a photo, because she has a very retro phone, she can’t see it, and she can’t even teleport. So, you decide to make a drawing of what you see, and to show her when you will meet.

Send us a drawing, a painting, a graphic about the future. Set free your creativity and imagination. There are prizes to win…

1. Make a hand drawing (with coloured pencils, watercolour, tempera, collage, etc.), or a digital drawing.
2. Make a photo of the drawing.
3. Send it by private message to the Facebook page of the castle or by e-mail to until January 31, 2021.
