The 2013 International Drawing Competition
Protecting our fisheries - inheriting a healthier world
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 15TH 2013
The International Drawing Competition: Protecting our fisheries - inheriting a healthier world is held as a part of a children and youth education initiative intended to enhance awareness of the importance of responsible fisheries among children and young people and to provide them with the knowledge that can help them to become responsible adults and active agents of change in our society. Relevant information about the challenges that our environment is facing today is an essential tool for enabling children and young people to take responsible action in their communities and, therefore, strengthen their participation in the protection, preservation and improvement of our natural resources.
The International Drawing Competition, linked to The Stop IUU Fishing Award/2013 (email@example.com), allows children and youth to express through their artwork and drawings, why protecting our fisheries is important to inheriting a healthier world. If you are a citizen of the world and you are between 6 and 20 years old, you are eligible to enter.
Prizes of US$500 will be awarded to the winner of each age group (6-10, 11-15 and 16-20 years old), US$200 will be awarded to the runner up of each age group and US$100 will be awarded to the third best drawing of each age group. In addition, Certificates of Recognition, signed by a United Nations official and a special gift to the schools of the winning artworks will be given.
Last but not least, the artworks will be used in logos, posters, FAO publications (distributed worldwide), T shirts and activity badges.

Deadline for entries is 15 April 2013.
