Online Children´s Art Competition – Bejing
The Embassy of Iceland recently held an Online Children´s Art Competition.
The competition commemorated the 70th Anniversary of the first visit of an Icelandic Cultural Delegation to China in 1952, led by the Icelandic poet and writer Jóhannes úr Kötlum.
The theme of the competition was an interpretation of “Hello Iceland” and intended for children aged 6 to 12 years, with two age categories, namely 6-9 and 10-12.
Many fantastic pictures, drawings and paintings were submitted, and three winning submissions were chosen from each age category. The judging panel was led by the Icelandic/French visual artist Dominique Ambroise Ibsen.
The 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners, in both age categories, received Certificates of Achievement along with other prizes such as books about Iceland in Chinese and Icelandic sweets.
Congratulations to all that participated!
