The drawing contest has been organised by the Municipality of Banská Štiavnica since 1995 and is for children from the World Heritage Cities. The drawing contest is inspired by the inscription of the Historic Town of Banská Štiavnica and the Technical Monuments in its Vicinity to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1993.
