During the opening of the exhibition of the 15th edition of Hestia Artistic Journey contest at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw the winners - who will go on a month-long artistic journey to New York and Valencia - will be announced. 

Hestia Artistic Journey competition was launched in 2002. The competition is open to third, fourth and fifth year students of all art academies in Poland. Every year, the jury comprising of artists, journalists and academic professors selects the most talented student of an art academy who takes part in one-month long artist-in-residence programme in New York, US and Valencia, Spain. In November 2009, ERGO Hestia's Hestia Artistic Journey garnered a statuette in the contest “Art More Precious Than Gold” organised by Commitment to Europe Arts & Business Foundation and the National Bank of Poland.
