The location chosen for the event is Naples and the cultural competition is aimed to clowns and professionals in the sector.

The "Teniamoci per Mano Onlus" clown therapy association organizes the second edition of the "Smile Clown Festival", artistic event, a cultural talent dedicated to emerging clowns, professionals and contemporary circus companies.

The competition was created with the aim of enhancing and rewarding the most beautiful artistic performances.

An important showcase for talents with the possibility of performing and making themselves known to the vast public of the Festival, the professionals of the sector that make up the jury and the press.

To whom the competition is open and how it is carried out.

The Competition is open to all adult clown actors of any nationality.

They must be authors and creators of their own number, which can be individual or a couple. There are three phases:
  • online pre-selections, visualized by the artistic;
  • live qualifications, to which 12 artists will be admitted to the qualifications, which will be announced on 31st January 2019 on the website, on the FB page of the Festival and by email to the artist by Teniamoci per Mano ONLUS;
  • final, which will take place on May 17, 2020 in Piazza Dante, in Naples. It will be possible to present only a number not exceeding 15 minutes, relating to the theme of empathy, which is not a copy or imitation of existing shows.

Registration is open, free and online, but hurry up, because it will close on January 31, 2020!!

A truly unmissable event that promises lots of fun! For everything concerning the details of the admitted numbers, the place of the competition and its development, we invite you to consult the Smile Clown Festival Rules.
