European Forest Week 2017

Art contest

What do Europe’s forests mean to you? If you are aged 5-19, use your imagination and artistic talent to create a drawing or painting illustrating the European Forest Week theme: Forests, our common good. Express your ideas, thoughts and feelings about European forests and share them with others around the region! Your drawing or painting could end up in a special display at European Forest Week in Warsaw, Poland, in October, and in a European Forest Week calendar.

WHO CAN TAKE PART?

The European Forest Week art contest is open to children and young people from 5 to 19 years of age.

HOW CAN I TAKE PART IN THE EUROPEAN FOREST WEEK ART CONTEST?

Drawings or paintings can be created digitally, drawn, painted or sketched using pens, pencils, crayons or charcoal, or using oil, acrylic or watercolor paint. Drawings or paintings should be scanned or photographed and attached as a JPEG to entry forms, available at http://www.fao.org/about/meetings/european-forest-week/art-contest/submission/. A winning drawing or painting and three runners-up will be selected for each of the age group categories: age 5 to 8, age 9 to 12, and age 13 to 19.

WHAT ARE THE PRIZES?

Winners and runners-up will be announced on the European Forest Week website and FAO social media during European Forest Week, 9-13 October 2017. They will also be featured in an exhibition in Warsaw during European Forest Week and in a European Forest Week calendar. Winners and runners-up will receive a copy of the calendar containing their drawing or painting, and winners will receive an additional Certificate of Recognition.

HOW DOES THE JUDGING WORK?

Drawings or paintings will be judged according to their relevance to the European Forest Week theme as well as for aesthetic and technical excellence. The three age groups for the art contest will be evaluated separately. The panel of judges will include professionals working in forestry and communications.

A list of rules for the art contest is available at http://www.fao.org/about/meetings/european-forest-week/art-contest/rules/. Submissions must be made online on the European Forest Week website. The deadline for entries is 31 July 2017.
