Peace Poster Contest 2010 – 2011 – Lions Clubs International

Each year, Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This Contest encourages young people worldwide to artistically express their visions of peace.

The theme of the 2010-11 Peace Poster Contest is “Vision of Peace”. Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 on 15 November, are eligible to participate.

Twenty-four international finalists are selected each year, representing the work of more than 350,000 young participants worldwide. Posters are shared globally via the Internet, the media and exhibits around the world.

Objective

Artistically express your “Vision of Peace”. All media are accepted.

  • Chalk, charcoal and pastel entries should be sealed with a fixative spray to prevent smearing.
  • Do not laminate entries.
  • Three-dimensional entries will not be accepted.
  • Nothing may be glued, stapled or attached to the artwork in any way.

Each poster is judged on originality, artistic merit and expression of the theme.

Prizes

One international grand prize winner will receive a trip to a special award ceremony with the sponsoring club president and two family members at Lions Day with the United Nations (subject to change). During the ceremony, the winning artist will receive an engraved plaque and a cash prize of US $2500.
