32nd Aigle de Nice, 2020


 The exhibition of the artworks of the artists competing in the 32nd Aigle de Nice Grand Prix was held in the Club House of Saint-Laurent-du-Var's Port.

Opened on 26th October, it unfortunately had to close prematurely on 30th October following the French government's announcements introducing the 2nd containment plan to fight against the Covid19 pandemic.

As a consequence of these measures, the Board of Directors of the Aigle de Nice had to take the difficult decision to shorten the 32nd Grand Prix.

As the Jury did not have time to meet and judge the works, there has been no delivery of any Aigle de Nice d'Or, d'Argent or de Bronze Prizes this year.

Only the following prizes were awarded in "Painting & Art Photos" and "Sculpture" categories:

- 3 Audience Special Awards Online for which we received nearly 5,000 votes

- 2 Founder's Originality Awards

- 3 Special Confinement Awards, offered exceptionally by President-Founder Alain Bideaux and rewarding the exceptional value of the overall work of 3 Artists

After the Prizelist, you will find some pictures of the pictures of the exhibition. The gallery of all the artworks in competition is here

A few words from the President & Founder


What a miserable year!


The 32nd Aigle de Nice and the exhibition of works in competition took place this year, again in Saint-Laurent du Var on the magnificent Port in the Club House.

Thirty-two years of existence, where we had started with the encouragement of Mr. Jacques MEDECIN, former Mayor of Nice, President of the Alpes-Maritimes General Council.

We deplore the flooding caused by the Alex storm in the Valleys of Vésubie, Tinée and Roya but a very great solidarity took place to help the victims.  

Just like the Coronavirus Covid 19 which takes thousands of innocent lives, I am terribly touched by it to such an extent that I have created a song entitled "Coronavirus", thanks to André FISICHELLA for the Music.

This year is a truly miserable year, one of the worst known in 78 years of my sacred life. Researchers must be encouraged to find a vaccine that will stop this damn virus.

Because of this Covid 19, I had to cancel the summer exhibitions and I had almost cancelled this 32nd Edition but, thank God, I was able to keep it. But we will have to be doubly vigilant.

I hope that 2021 will be better.


A big thank you to the Vice-President Evelyne GREZES, to our Secretary Venus DREAMS, to Alain BENEDETTO, to Carlos GASPAR and Marilyn McQUEEN, administrator, Josseline and Paul-Louis REBORA, Administrator, without forgetting Estelle and Lydie for the great help for the hangings.

Thanks also to our Japanese partner for nearly 25 years, Masashi YOKOYAMA from Osaka.

Unfortunately, for this year, we had some restrictions for the duration of the Grand Prix: Cocktails were cancelled as well as the closing dinner. Invitations were limited and the Public Prize in the hall was replaced by the online one on the website www.aigledenice.com, which allowed the Public to vote for the 2 categories Painting/Art Photos and Sculptures in 2 separate galleries, thanks to the work of our development engineer, M. BOAS.

The number of connections across the 5 continents is growing day by day: 1.7 million unique visits since the creation of the website!
