Overview and History

The Aigle de Nice is a French non-profit organization registred in Nice. It was founded in 1988 by the french variety songwriter Alain Bideaux, who still is its President. From then on, the people at the Aigle de Nice organize every november an International Arts Award Ceremony open to everyone.

Since 1989, several thousand artists, representing more than 60 countries in the World participated in the competition. Therefore, the organization really puts the "International" in "Aigle de Nice International". It has been online since 2003 and more than 450,000 people from 120 countries visited the website (January 2016).

The first edition of the Aigle de Nice took place in November 1989 with the support of Nice's ex-Mayor, Mr. Jacques Médecin. And, since then, the Aigle de Nice International occurs yearly, always in November, so it doesnt encroach on the other French Arts competitions.

1989: Part of the City Council with First Deputy Raoul Bosio, our well-beloved André Bonny, Bixio, Alain Guillon, Wanda Tholozan, André Barthe, in its speech, and Léopold Massiera, President of the Nice Traditions Comity.

1992: Award giving ceremony at the Jean Bouin Arena, Nice.

1994: Award giving ceremony with Deputies André Barthe and André Bonny, Philip Bruno, Mayor of Roubion and Artist Guido.

From 1989 to 1994, the Aigle de Nice took place at Jean Bouin Arena and then, from 1995 to 1998 at the Agriculture Palace of Nice. In 1998, in order to celebrate its 10th birthday, the ceremony occured both at Grasse Congress Centre and Nice Agriculture Palace.

The Aigle de Nice ceremony moved to other cities in the French Riviera in 1998, to conform to an intercommunal policy. In 1999, at the Saint-Jean-Cap Ferrat harbour ; in 2000, in Grasse again ; in 2001, at the Saint-Laurent du Var harbour.

In 2002, the organization goes back to its birthplace, Nice with an exhibition at the Sainte-Réparate Arts Gallery, in the Old Town and the 2nd Crystal Aigle de Nice at the Acropolis Congress Centre.
