BACKGROUND ON THE COMPETITION

The International Drawing Competition: Food for a Healthy World is a youth education initiative about food and nutrition. It promotes awareness of the importance of a diversity of nutritious foods for a healthy environment and for healthy people. It also highlights some global challenges relating to food – such as hunger, malnutrition, the food system, and climate change. The competition empowers children and young people with knowledge to make more informed food choices and to be active agents of change in our society. This competition encourages children and young people to create artwork and drawings that express why nutritious foods are important for a healthy world.

PARTICIPANTS

This international drawing competition is open to ALL children and young people from 6 to 20 years old.

COMPETITION RULES

The drawing should reflect an issue concerning nutritious foods. The drawings may reflect environmental or social issues. Learn more by reading the “Time to Think and Act” section (pages 5-7). You can plan and develop some educational activities to raise your group’s awareness about food, nutrition and food production topics before they start drawing.

  1. Drawings should be on white A4-size or letter-size paper in the round or square frames provided inthe annexed templates. The diameter of the round frame and length of the square should be 18 cm. Pictures not submitted in this format cannot be considered in the competition.
  2. Drawings should be submitted giving the full name, date of birth, country and postal and/or email address of the participant. Drawings submitted without this information cannot be considered in the competition.
  3. Remind your group that the drawing could be used for making small badges and large posters! Encourage them to use bright, bold colours. Participants may use drawing materials of any type: pens, pencils, paints, with the exception of crayons as they do not reproduce well. They are also allowed to use computer graphic programmes.
  4. The drawings must be the child’s or youth’s original creation. Most importantly, they should use their imagination and have lots of fun!

DEADLINE AND SUBMISSION OF ENTRIES

The deadline for submitting your drawings is 31 October 2013. The postmark date will be regarded as the date of delivery.
