ADRA Art Contest for children, youth and families.
An image is worth a thousand words. The Art Contest “Hear me. See me. Walk with me.” encourages young people across Europe to use their creativity to learn, understand, and support people forced to flee their country.
The 2022 art contest is a chance to use creativity for a good cause. Worldwide, more than 80 million people have fled their homes to escape conflict and persecution. Children, youth, and families can use their talents to share the message that everyone deserves to be treated with practical kindness, justice, compassion, and love – to live as God intended.
Who can apply?
The contest is open to all children, youth, and family members ages 5 to 25 years.
All artwork must be the sole and original work of the participators. Parents/guardians may provide minimal help to younger children.
Contest entries will be divided by age, and the most outstanding artworks will be chosen from each age category. Artworks will be evaluated by the Art Committee. Members will evaluate based on creativity as well as how effectively it conveys the message of kindness, hope, and solidarity. Each participant is welcome to share the artwork on his/her social media.
The Themes are HANDS OF HOPE – Everyone is worthy of love, care, and kindness – and BRINGING FORGOTTEN CHILDREN TO SCHOOL – Every refugee child should be given a chance to receive a quality education.
If you are interested, please apply by clicking here. The deadline to apply is 15 May 2022.
Who will win?
Contest entries will be divided by age, and the most outstanding piece of art will be chosen from each age group. Some artworks may be used to further promote the education of all children, may be shared on social media, and used as education material for raising awareness about the migration issue as widely as possible.
Winners will receive awards and experiences appropriate for different age groups, for example, school supplies, gift vouchers for attending a Camporee, a youth camp or congress, or a volunteer experience of ADRA projects in Europe. Winners can also donate the cash value of their prize, and ADRA will provide school supplies for the refugee children.
The Art Committee will evaluate artworks and choose the three best entries from each category. Members will determine based on creativity and how effectively it conveys the message of kindness, hope, and solidarity. Shortly after the Committee members’ selection, ADRA will launch an invitation on social media for people to vote on the official ADRA webpage, from May 18 to 28, for their favourite piece of art from each category. Each participant is welcome to share the artwork on their social media.
Winners will be notified by email after voting is completed. The online award ceremony will be available on June 18, 2022.
