JUANNIO is an exclusive artistic and philanthropic event established in 1964. Since then, it has become one of the most important annual cultural events in Guatemala and Latin America. In 2019, JUANNIO will consist of a contest and a private auction of Latin American Art, with all its proceeds going to charity. The funds collected are then donated to the Neurological Institute of Guatemala; an educational center for children with limited resources and special needs learning programs, which was founded in 1961.

The JUANNIO Organizing Committee has the honor of inaugurating and presenting the 55th edition of its annual auction, through this invitation containing the requirements for participation in the contest, which we urge the artist to read and understand fully.
