‘If you’re aged between 5 and 19, we want to hear from you! Use your imagination and create a poster showing a world where no one is left behind, and everyone has access to healthy and affordable food’.
When I read the above on the World Food Day Poster Contest website I was in – and wanted to post about it here to let other young people know about it.
The Food and Agriculture Organization [FAO] of the United Nations are organising this poster contest – and below is a list of some of the information I think is most important to know about it:
‘Poster entries may be drawn, painted or sketched using pens, pencils, crayons or charcoal, or using oil, acrylic or watercolour paint, as well as mixed media. Digitally created artwork is also permitted. No photographs are allowed‘.
‘The competition is divided into the following categories: 5 to 8, 9 to 12, 13 to 15, and 16 to 19’.
‘Poster entries may or may not include text. If text is used, no more than 25 words or 100 characters can be accepted. Do not include personal information, such as names, school names or age, etc’.
‘All artwork must be original and should not include logos or photographic images of the Contestant or other personal information’.
‘Take a photo or scan your poster and submit your entry by filling out the form on our website’.
‘The top three poster designs in all categories will be announced on the World Food Day website’.
‘Winners will be promoted on FAO social media and by FAO offices around the world’.
And the deadline is 4 November 2022.
Go to the contest website for more information – and enjoy creating!
